English: Thomas Nast’s most famous drawing, “Merry Old Santa Claus”, from the January 1, 1881 edition of Harper’s Weekly. Thomas Nast immortalized Santa Claus’ current look with an initial illustration in an 1863 issue of Harper’s Weekly, as part of a large illustration titled “A Christmas Furlough” in which Nast set aside his regular news and political coverage to do a Santa Claus drawing. The popularity of that image prompted him to create another illustration in 1881. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Santa Claus‘s gifts

Santa Claus has got us gifts and toys,
Let us sing and welcome him, all you girls and boys.
For if we make Santa really happy, he’ll visit us each year,
He’ll get us gifts, sing and dance with us the merry cheer.
Merry Christmas! May you get lots of presents.
