Santa Claus & Merry Christmas cover from FRANCE

Cover Name:Merry Christmas.
Details:Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, or simply "Santa", is a figure which was derived from the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, a historical, legendary figure who in many Western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas Eve, December 24or on his Feast Day, December 6 (Saint Nicholas Day).The legend may have part of its basis in hagiographical tales concerning the historical figure of gift giver Saint Nicholas. A nearly identical story is attributed by Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea. Basil's feast day on January 1 is considered the time of exchanging gifts in Greece
Remark:Thanks Eric for the nice Santa Claus cover.My daughters love Santa Claus so much that they wait for Christmas so that I will buy lot of gifts on behalf of Santa Claus so that they will give it to others.Merry Christmas to all.
