Limited Edition of 3200 Pieces, Individually Numbered. Introduced in 2012
The Christmas Eve Santa represents the Gift Bringer
that may have been seen on illustrations around 1900 to 1910.
In those poorer times, St. Nicholas wore a simple brown coat,
although a bishop-red skirt peaks out from underneath, symbolizing
the red robe of the original St. Nicholas. His sack is filled with loose
toys as children received their gifts without packaging in those early
days. A small Christmas tree with berries becomes his staff. The
Christ Child, in a simple white robe, holds one hand up in blessing
while the other little hand grabs a curly end of Santa's beard,
reminding us that the Babe was God and human at the same time.
