Christmas Theme

In this Winter Holiday Season - the Christmas Season, I made a frame of Santa Claus also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, or simply "Santa".

"Christmas" also know as Christ's Mass is a Christian holiday and popular secular festival celebrated on December 25.

It refers both to the day celebrating the birth of Jesus (Jesus of Nazareth), as well as to the season which that day inaugurates, which concludes with the Feast of the Epiphany (revelation of God to mankind in human form, in the person of Jesus. The feast is also called Twelfth Day, as it is the twelfth day after Christmas)
