Thread Name: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
Subject: RE: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
It seems that the red-suited Santa Claus stems from drawings by Thomas Nast for Harper's Weekly. I believe that these were not colored in the magazine. Would like to know where the first colored image of Santa in a red suit appeared.
