    The Story

    Dating back to the 3rd century, Saint Nicholas is known as the patron saint of children and sailors. His feast day, December 6th, included the tradition of gift giving, especially to children. Over time, this would merge with the celebration of Christmas.

    Initially, Santa was seen as a slim, kindly old man, wearing a red robe. But with the publication of Clement Clarke Moore’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas” in 1822, Santa became known as a “jolly old elf” with a “little round belly.” This description inspired cartoonist Thomas Nast, who drew the first image of the cheerful, rotund, white-bearded man in a red suit holding a sack full of toys. Published in Harper’s Weekly in 1881, Nast also gave Santa his North Pole workshop address. After all, where else would he live with his reindeer?

    Santa’s image was further refined in 1931 by Coca Cola. Definitively portly, in a red suit with white fur trim, black belt and boots, this is how we see Santa today as he flies from the North Pole in his magic sleigh.

    Santa Claus is coming to town!

      Instant Christmas warmth and glow!

      How much easier can it be? Open them up, put some water in, and drop in the light. Works inside and out. No typical candle risks or annoyances. I can't get enough of these things. Have already bought as presents for several friends.

      Bright Christmas

      I gave to best friends as a reasonably priced Christmas gift with a bag of local caramels. One friend enjoyed on her fireplace mantel, whereas the other friend enjoyed as part of her dining room table decor for Christmas Eve dinner.

      Early Christmas Shopping

      I purchased this for a friend for Christmas. I have given her other Modgy luminaries, and she loved them. I have several others I purchased from Modgy, and I just love them all. Great gifts at great prices.
