Read the passages and choose the best answer
As Christmas evolved in the United States, new customs were adopted and many old
ones were reworked. The legend of Santa Claus, for example, had origins in Europe and was
brought by Dutch settlers to New York in the early 18
century. Traditionally, Santa Claus
from the Dutch Sinter Klaas was depicted as a tall, dignified, religious figure riding a
white horse through the air. Known as Saint Nicholas in Germany, he was usually
accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. In North America he
eventually developed into a fat, jolly old gentleman who had neither the religious attributes
of Saint Nicholas nor the strict disciplinarian character of Black Peter.

Santa’s transformation began in 1823, when a New York newspaper published the
poem A Visit from Saint Nicholas, which Clement Clark Moore had written to amuse his
daughter. The poem introduced many Americans to the story of a kindly saint who flew over
housetops in a reindeer-drawn sleigh. Portraits and drawings of Santa Claus by American
illustrator Thomas Nast further strengthened the legend during the second half of the 19
century. Living at the North Pole and assisted by elves, the modern Santa produced and
delivered toys to all good children. By the late 19
century he had become such a prominent
figure of American folklore that in 1897, when Virginia O’Hanlon wrote to the New York
Sun newspaper asking if Santa was real, she received a direct answer: Yes, Virginia, there
is a Santa Claus”.
