Webster's Dictionary traces "Kris Kringle" back to the German "Kristkindl" meaning "Christ Child" and indicates that the first documented use in English was 1830. The term Kris Kringle entered the English language through the immigration of Pennsylvania Dutch settlers. It soon became synonymous with Santa Claus. For example, the Santa figure in the classic film Miracle on 34th Street is referred to as "Kris Kringle."
