- THE HISTORY & FOLKLORE OF SANTA CLAUS-PRESENTED VIA ZOOM BY LAURA KEYES ON TUES., DEC. 1 AT 6:30PM

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? This Illustrated Lecture is well-researched, with details on the journey Bishop Nicholas made to become our current-day Santa Claus. It also includes many recognizable images and poems.
