Re: Santa Clause
The Santa we see in a red suit was made popular by Coca Cola at the beginning of the last century, they chose red and white as its their brand colours. Previously to that Santa was traditionally seen in green, brown, tan or occasionally burgundy. In Holland St Nicholas arrives on a sailing ship with his assistant Black Peter on St Nicholas's Day. Every country has various Santa/Father Christmas/ St Nicholas traditions unfortunately ours are now mainly aligned with the USA which is predominantly commercial.
There are some really nice Christmas traditions across the world its worth having a look at one or two.
