A foot of snow was recorded in New York's Central Park yesterday and several more inches could fall today in eastern parts of the state. Meanwhile, parts of Maine remain under a blizzard warning. Hundreds of flights have been canceled at several airports while motorists travel treacherous highways. But many residents have taken advantage of the fresh snow and headed outdoors.

In European tradition, parents would leave gifts in their children's shoes on St. Nickolas' birthday. European settlers then brought those traditions to America. But two men popularized Santa Claus in American culture. In 18-22, Clement Clark Moore took the Dutch image of St. Nickolas -- called Sinterklass-- and wrote 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. And in the late 19th century, Thomas Nast drew the first modern pictures of Santa Claus for Harpers Weekly Magazine. More than a hundred years later, that's the Saint Nick kids expect to see stuffing their stockings.
