"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."
What's Christmas or the holiday season be without the rosy cheek, jolly man himself. Our next vintage short is 1898's "Santa Claus". The one minute, seventeen second short was directed by George Albert Smith, a British hypnotist, inventor, and psychic. This gem is considered the very first Christmas movie. And what makes it so great is that it features Old Saint Nick at the helm. Though short, this sweet story will warm your heart, taking your back to a time when you believed in the magic of Santa Claus.
So, take a mini break from your holiday shopping. Sit back on your couch with a festive drink and journey down memory lane with the "Santa Claus", playing on YouTube for free.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
