Santa Claus at City Stadium
Santa Claus visits Green Bay City Stadium while children, parents, and the news media look on, ca. 1950. Since Clement Clarke Moore wrote the poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas", in 1822, Santa Claus has been associated with Christmas. During World War II and after, Santa became the most popular symbol of the season. Cards, songs, and decorations revolved around the figure, while crowds of children attended Christmas events just to speak with him.
