12/20/10: Santa Claus - A Biography

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Christmas is fast approaching and some of you may be expecting a visit from that jolly Santa Claus Friday night. (If you've been good that is.) But just who is this man that will magically slide down your chimney?

Historian Gerry Bowler joins Doug for a biographical look at Santa Claus. (Rebroadcast)
