Description
This edition of Biography, the long running documentary series from A&E, explores the history and myth surrounding Santa Claus. St. Nicholas was superseded in much of Europe by Christkindlein, the Christ child, who delivered gifts in secret to the children. He traveled with a dwarf-like helper called Pelznickel (a.k.a. Belsnickle) or with St. Nicholas-like figures. Eventually, all three were combined into the image that we now know as Santa Claus. "Christkindlein" became Kriss Kringle. This video also includes commentary on the importance of Santa as a Christmas figure and the possibilities of a real-life St. Nicholas existing in history. ~ John Patrick Sheehan, Rovi

display_descriptionHis roots are firmly planted in religious ground, yet he has become a symbol of the secular side of the Christmas celebration. Despite the commercialization, he remains a symbol of what is worthwhile about the holiday season: generosity, kindness and good will to men. Santa Claus has enjoyed a long and fruitful history, though perhaps not as long a one as some might imagine. Though the name of "St. A Claus" appears in print in America as early as 1773, he took familiar and lasting form with the publication of 'The Night Before Christmas' in 1823. From his origins in 4th-century Turkey to modern big-screen incarnations, follow the tracks of "eight tiny reindeer" deep into the heart of this beloved icon. Track his many incarnations and ongoing evolution, and see how the jolly gift-giver has been embraced by people and cultures the world over.
