Does anyone reading this remember a day before there was actually a face to Santa Claus? Probably not - unless you were born in the 20's.

Nowadays, most folks agree that Santa has a jolly countenance, wears a red suit and has a white beard. But he didn't always look that way. In fact, early depiction range from scruffy danes sporting leather caps to 16th century Monks topped with Papal crowns.

Truth be told, before Haden Sunblom painted the first 'jolly ole' elf' for Coca-Cola, the world only imagined Santa.

You won't need much of an imagination to experience the living, breathing, story-telling character of Imagine Santa ... he's not only the perfect picture of Santa Claus, he might just be the real thing.
