What Santa Looks Like

When most of us think of Father Christmas we picture the jolly fellow with the big white beard and red suit or even the one from the Clement Clarke Moore poem 'Twas the night before Christmas' with the broad face and a little round belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
As he never visits if we are awake, it is hard to actually know how the great man looks but thanks to forensic specialists at Liverpool John Moores University, we now know.
To be honest the rendering doesn't look that different than the vision most of us have of him in our heads, minus the ruddy like roses cheeks, the nose is as cherry-like possibly, a lack of dimples or twinkle in the eyes, but at least the beard on his chin is as white as the snow.
