P.S. I too had heard about the green suit but I don't know about the skinny bit.
Over years my name evolved into "Sinta Cales," which then evolved into the Santa Claus people know today.
Most people see me in red because of Coca-Cola. They dressed me in red and white to fit the company colors.
I am actually dressed in green. And to preserve the green, Christmas is primarily the colours of red and green.
North American culture of celebrating Christmas is actually events from other countries blended into one event. The French still call me Saint Nicolas.
