English: Thomas Nast's most famous drawing, "Merry Old Santa Claus", from the January 1, 1881 edition of initial illustration in an 1863 issue of Harper's Weekly, as part of a large illustration titled "A Christmas Furlough" in which Nast set aside his regular news and political coverage to do a Santa Claus drawing. The popularity of that image prompted him to create another illustration in 1881.
