Changing history of Christmas

Dec 17, 2006

This morning I read a nice little history lesson or version of history about the character named Bishop Nicholas, who was later renamed St. Nicholas and rolled into the character of Santa Claus.

Gorumet Gift Baskets.com provided the history lesson in a recent release and as part of their effort to spread good cheer this holiday season with great christmas gift baskets.

As this tale goes, the concept and practice of celebrating St Nicholas's day was almost wiped out in the protestant reformation in England but later resurrected by Dutch colonists in New York where the New York Historical Society founded by John Pintard focussed to keep the saint in the public eye.  Just over a dozen years after the founding of the society, the poem 'The Night Before Christmas" was published and the tale grew a life of its own.
