Centuries ago, celebrating Christmas was a holy and festive break from the toil of everyday life. This was especially true in the country where villagers and hard-working farmers labored endlessly to bring food and shelter to their families. It is no wonder that these simple people welcome the joy and jubilation of the holidays. The Country Santa Claus visits the small rural towns with his wheelbarrow to help him carry his load of gifts. Bells tied to the front of the wheelbarrow announce his arrival to the children who anxiously peer out of their windows in the hopes of catching a glimpse of him. The Country Santa Claus has found a couple kittens alongside the road and knows they will be a big surprise when tucked into a child's stocking. In the country tradition of not being wasteful, Santa wears a coat made from little patches of fabric, much like those on the old patchwork quilts that country mothers make from leftover scraps. His dress is made of a favorite calico. The Country Santa Claus brings warmth and joy to country homes already filled with the smells of fresh-baked bread, laughter, hard work, love of family and love of the country life.
