Santa Claus was a renowned individual.
In 1916, Henry Walton Jones, Senior was patronized by his peers for his pursuit of the Holy Grail at a conference in Philadelphia which included a jibe by one who claimed to have heard that Jones was in the North Pole seeking the historical Santa Claus.
In 1936, the media's discovery of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye in India prompted Indiana Jones to warn his friend Sallah that the situation was shaping up to become the biggest thing since Santa Claus.
