Santa Claus Worldwide describes gift givers throughout the world in history from the pagan god Odin to the present day Father Christmas, Weihnachten, Père Noël, Ded Moroz, and Santa Claus. Mr. Jerman’s thorough research of this subject, takes the reader on a journey from Winter Solstice celebrations that evolved into the Christmas season that is beloved around the globe. After reading this fine book, one will never look at a “right, jolly old elf” the same way but enlightened at how he has endured over time.
