Hold on to your sleighs as we sprint through history following the breadcrumbs from the Council of Nicaea to modern day as we trace the evolution of saintly Santa Claus. Social Transformation M. Div. student and casual art historian Suzanne W. Cole Sullivan will unroll how Nicholas, Bishop of Myra went from an obscure churchman with a penchant for truth to one of the most recognizable figures in the world. Bring your own milk and cookies to this arts lunch!
