This tree depicts the evolution of Saint Nicholas to Father Christmas to the Santa Claus of American folklore. Figural ornaments depict all three, and the abundance of red velvet and white fur represent the garments they wore. Among the ornaments used are die-cut paper decorations ornamented with tinsel.
