Many people enjoy coloring in as it allows them to focus on the present moment. When you combine it with a Christmas theme of Santa Claus, you are focusing on the presents as well! Santa Claus is an old man with a white beard, usually wearing red garments and a fur-lined hat. He is famous for living in the North Pole and making a journey on Christmas Eve to distribute presents while children are sleeping. He sneaks into their homes via the chimney if they have one, and as he is quite fat he has to be careful that he does not get stuck.
The pictures in this category show all of these symbolic links and children all over the world, even if they are not fully aware of his story, find his image and what he represents to be instantly recognizable. He has a famous list and he always ‘checks it twice, to find out who’s naughty or nice’ as the song lyrics go. You can even see a picture of him doing this. Children will love this special touch as they can immediately imaging their name is on the list of the good children who will go to bed on Christmas Eve and dream of the presents that they may find on their bed or in their Christmas stocking when they wake up.
You can choose from simple to elegant images of Santa Claus, or Father Christmas as he is sometimes called. There are even ones that show him being quite goofy and silly. All sorts of images can be found here, even one where after a long night of delivering presents, he is happy to sit in his rocking chair reading a good book!
