I n the 1600s, the Dutch brought their St. Nicholas Eve traditions with them when they emigrated to the New World. The name Sinterklaas, (Dutch for St. Nicholas), after years of mispronunciation by English speaking children, evolved into 'Sainty Claus' then 'Santa Claus'.
In the early 1800s, his image was altered from that of a ' Bishop', by American author Washington Irving, to become "a jolly Dutchman with a pipe, wearing baggy pants & broad brimmed hat".
