Lovely Vintage Photos Prove That Mr. Santa Is Also a Normal Person

The best-known (at least in modern times) mascot of Christmas, developed in the United States as an amalgam of the story of St. Nicholas of Myra and various other seasonal folk heroes, with many aspects provided by the classic poem A Visit From St. Nicholas (popularly known by its first line, Twas the Night Before Christmas). Below is a collection of 16 vintage photographs of Santa Claus as a normal person...
