Christmas tree, mistletoe, holly... many pagan rites connected with the shortest day were banned by the church or conscripted to make their own Christmas Happening.

In Anglicization of his name in 1773 Nicholas becomes Sant a Claus. In 1809 in the book "A History of New York' by Washington Irving the waist of Santa considerably broadened. Santa Claus is now a pot-bellied pipe smoker instead of a good-hearted bishop.
In the poem "A Visit from Saint Nicholas" (known as "The Night Before Christmas") by Clement Clarke Moore in 1823 Santa Claus gets a magical sleigh with reindeer and a sack full of toys. In 1930 he was awarded by an advertising campaign for Coca-Cola to his final appearance. Illustrator Haddon Sundblom gave him dressed in red Christmas white fur trim and leather boots.
In 1822, the reindeer were given names: Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Dasher, Donner, Prancer and Vixen. Robert L. May launched around 1939, the ninth reindeer, Rudolf, a first by others bullied gain that with his glowing red nose lit the way. In 1949, Johnny Marks wrote the song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer".

Christmas has not just sugar-sweet music, but also very danceable songs. Moreover, there are to be found masses CD boxes at that time of the year with appropriate music.
