The History & Folklore of Santa Claus – Virtual Lecture
December 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Thursday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m., 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?
Please note: Because of secrets revealed, this program is NOT intended for children for whom Santa Claus is a very real figure!
