Watch Santa and Pete
- 1 hr 30 min
Santa and Pete is a Santa origin story that also involves a version of the character Black Pete, from several countries' Santa legends. Instead of the sinister figure of legend who hands out switches to naughty children, this Pete is a friendly and kind man who is helped by St Nicholas and in turn helps to loosen up St. Nicholas' more traditionalist ideas as they travel from Holland to a new settlement in America: New York. Popular elements of the Santa Claus legend, including flying reindeer, coming into houses down the chimney and presents in stockings, are explored and explained.
