NHS Virtual Lecture: The History & Folklore of Santa Clause

Presented via Zoom by the Norwalk Historical Society with guest presenter, Laura Keyes. 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?

Tickets are $5 per household and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/3EbKHyz or www.norwalkhistoricalsociety.org. Please note: Because of secrets revealed, this program is NOT intended for children for whom Santa Claus is a very real figure!
