📜 History of Santa’s List Day
Most people think that Santa Claus was a third-century monk named St. Nicholas. Over time, St. Nicholas became recognized as the guardian of children and seafarers. The tale of St. Nicholas evolved over time. When Dutch families gathered to commemorate the death anniversary of ‘Sinterklaas’ in the 18th century, the legend of St. Nicholas made inroads into American popular culture (Dutch for St. Nicholas). In the nineteenth century, gift-giving and Santa Claus’ participation in it all became a part of Christmas custom. Santa Claus could be found everywhere, from New York’s streets to retail centers and ads.
But Clement Mark Moore’s poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” was the watershed event. The poem depicts a jovial old guy flying from home to home, effortlessly shimmying up and down chimneys to leave gifts for deserving youngsters, often known as those on his pleasant list.
