“History of Santa” #6
Kris Kringle, another Santa Claus eponym, is the Americanized spelling and pronunciation of “Christkind;” affectionately, “Christkindl.” Christkindl is the traditional gift-bringer from Germany, usually portrayed as a child or teen with blonde hair and angelic wings. Martin Luther promoted the Christkindl as a Protestant alternative to St. Nicholas. Though the Christkind spread even to the New World, in the 19th century she began to be replaced by the secular Santa Claus, who adopted the altered version of her name. In Nuremburg, Germany today, the Christkind is still a beloved character, and a contest is held every other year to select a girl to play her in city events at Christmastime
