St. Nick

And so the story goes….

Santa’s evolution includes a round-the-world ride that rivals the one he does on Christmas Eve.

In 1822 Clement Clarke Moore wrote “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” also known as “The Night Before Christmas,” for his six children, with no intention of adding to the fledgling Santa Claus phenomenon. It was published anonymously the next year, and to this day the plump, jolly Santa described therein rides a sleigh driven by eight familiar reindeer. “It went viral,” explained University of Manitoba historian, Gerry Bowler, author of “Santa Claus: A Biography”.
