Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, but he is older than you might think. Before Santa Claus, many cultures throughout the world incorporated similar figures into their holidays and traditions. Learn how these traditions affect our Christmas celebration today. To enjoy this virtual program, go to our MCPL360 Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mcpl360/ at the scheduled day and time.
