When he's not busy delivering presents, Santa must enjoy the delights of the garden. That certainly looks to be the case for this jolly ornament which features a flock of bluebirds — symbols of happiness and prosperity and regular visitors to Colonial Williamsburg's renowned historic gardens. The lovely floral motifs on the robes of this Jim Shore Santa ornament are inspired by quilt patterns in Colonial Williamsburg's collection. Our stone resin collectible makes an ideal gift for any folk art or Santa collector.
Later settlers—especially the Dutch and the Pennsylvania Germans—began to incorporate their European traditions of Santa Claus into Christmas celebrations here. After the American Revolution, New Yorkers remembered with pride the colony's nearly-forgotten Dutch roots. St. Nick was heavily promoted through the New York Historical Society in the early 1800s, and his popularity spread with the 1823 publication of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," now more commonly known as "The Night Before Christmas."
