1809 AD
Washington Irving credited with inventing Santa Claus in a collection
of stories published in "Knickerbocker's History of New York". He mentions St Nicholas 25 times and described him as "a genial yet obviously patrician saint dressed in a broad hat and invariably smoking a long pipe" and arrived each Eve of St. Nicholas driving a wagon. Irving also invented the phrase "laying his finger beside his nose". The book was published on St. Nicholas Day, December 6, 1809.
