Before ol’ St. Nick rose up the chimney he had to have come down the same way. But, why the chimney at all…why not through the door or a window? Could it be all doors and windows are suppose to be locked, especially at midnight and wee hours of the morning? When/where does the chimney really enter the picture? There are various stories why Santa comes down the chimney. The one most commonly known appears in the famous Christmas poem “An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas” even though Santa’s connection with chimneys dates back several centuries before the poem.
