Twelve Months of Christmas: May

Short, Pudgy Santa

 

Short, Pudgy Santa While most European Father Christmas figures tend to be whimsical, tall, and slender, the Americanized holiday figure is often a jovial, rotund Santa. That is often the easiest way to be able to tell when, and where, the original chocolate mould used to create our chalkware Santas originates. In the case of the Short, Pudgy Santa (VFA Nr. 11059), the mould originated in the United States and was created in our lifetime. Because of its shape, Judi decided to decorate this Short, Pudgy Santa in more traditional patterns and color schemes.
