Scottish & Canadian Tartan Santas

Have a cheerful Tartan Santa dressed in the authentic Scottish or Canadian tartan of your choice.
Scotland didn't have a Santa until well into the 20th century, and then adopted Father Christmas. 'Hogmanay' (New Year's) was their favoured time for festivities.
This jolly fellow, however, is sure to become a cherished Christmas heirloom in celebration of one of the many clan tartans.
