40182 Race Car Santa New for 2010

Race Car Santa Christmas Ornament
40182 Merck Family's Old World Christmas
Introduced 2010

Santa in his shiny red and green race car. Ornament made of mouth blown, hand painted glass. Measures approximately 3 1/2" x 5"

The legend of Santa Claus is derived from the European figure of St. Nicholas. He became the jolly man clad in red - the folk hero all children dream about on Christmas Eve. Often early printed Christmas postcards featured Santa making his rounds in "new-fangled" modes of transportation, like a vintage race car!
