We’re getting a jump-start to the Holiday Season! Join us at the Cumberland County Historical Society and let Mr. March teach us about Christmas. What does Santa have in common with Ancient Rome? More than you might think. As Roman armies spread across the world, their rituals intermingled with local traditions and were transformed. Germanic groups in America adapted their tradition to a new environment and constructed the Belsnickel. In time, through the work of Pennsylvania German artist, Thomas Nast, the Belsnickel would be reborn as America’s most–beloved gift giver, Santa Claus.
