The History and Folklore of Santa Claus (Zoom)

December 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)

FREE

 

Many folks know that our modern-day Santa Claus had his start as St. Nicholas, but what happened on the journey to make us think of a “jolly old elf” rather than a pious Christian bishop? Where, exactly, did Santa Claus come from, and why does his popularity remain so high in modern American popular culture? This Illustrated Lecture is well-researched, with details on the journey Bishop Nicholas made to become our current-day Santa Claus.

Join us via Zoom.  Registration is required.  Once registered you will receive further information on how to join the event.
