“I wanted to create a painting that would evoke both the history and traditions of the Christmas season,” said James C. Christensen. “I was surprised to discover that our Christmas is not just a transplantation of old world traditions, but a synthesis of customs brought to this country by our forefathers.” Our present day Santa Claus is a symbol, not only of Christmas, but represents our melting-pot society.

This painting is a fantasy, a personal interpretation of that 'jolly old elf' that embodies not only the spirit of Christmas, but the best of America.”
