Thomas Nast Santa: 1800s, North America

A stout Santa in a short jacket, pants and stocking cap

Inspired by Clement Moore's poem, 'A Visit from St. Nick', this Santa is an interpretation by political cartoonist, Thomas Nast of the 1800s. Unlike the gift-bringer of Mr. Nast's German heritage, 'Pelznickel', this one was a jolly, stout fellow as the poem portrays him. Thomas Nast's pen & ink sketches of this Santa appeared in 'Harper's Weekly' magazine at Christmas for many years; and in his book in 1889, 'Thomas Nast's Christmas Drawings for the Human Race'.
He also originated many of the Santa Legends: Santa's home at the North Pole; the writing of letters to Santa; leaving a snack for Santa and Santa spying on childrens' behaviour throughout the year.
