Description
You probably know him as Saint Nick, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, or Santa Claus. In Armenia this iconic symbol of holiday cheer is called Gaghant Baba; in China he's known as Dun Che Lao Ren; Ganesha in India and Deda Mraz in Yugoslavia. But who was he? The 4th-century miracle worker Bishop Nicholas of Myra in modern-day Turkey? The 6th-century Abbot Nicholas of Zion? This DVD explores both of these Middle Eastern holy men as well as the origins of our modern-day Santa: from the brain child of Civil War–era cartoonist Thomas Nast, created to comfort weary soldiers during the holidays, to the savvy Coca-Cola ad men who adopted the image 50 years later.
