He goes by many names: Sinter Klaas, Pére Noël, Babbo Natale, Kris Kringle. But how did a Christian saint become transformed into the sleigh-riding, present-delivering, cookie-devouring, “jolly old elf” that we know today? From a real-life fourth-century bishop to the patron saint of New York, from the reindeer who pull his sleigh to the Krampus who tags along and punishes misbehaving children, we’ll explore the magic and mystery of the world’s most iconic character.
