If no one has a book, maybe someone can point me to an online article.

I've found a few but they are kind of "choppy" with the information (or there is too much information).

Just looking for someone clear cut and simple that talks about the history/origin of Santa.

Thanks

Char,

We've been reading (one chapter a day through December) The Autobiography of Santa Claus as told to Jeff Gwinn.  This is not a children's book, but is appropriate for family reading.  So far it's been very educational and entertaining.  I found it on the Books a million website on bargain books for $3.99. 

Good luck.

We're reading the same book Tracy, and my seven year old is loving it.  I have the other two in the triology, and he can't wait to get to them. :)  I highly recommend it.
