Why does Santa Claus enter by the chimney?

Santa Claus entering homes by Chimney is part of a European tradition.  The hearth is a sacred place because it use to be a central place for fairies and elves to enter.  It was added to American tradition with the poem "A Visit from St Nick."  Red seems to be the popular color but early Santa's wore robes of all color, as blue is popular.  

The back of these two trade cards.

When I read a magazine I also have paper and pencil to TAKE NOTE

I was reading a copy of Better Homes and Garden and discovered phrases that would make good titles, or descriptions for some of the photographs I take.  So right now I went around the house taking pictures of things that might match those phrases.  It is good exercise to get outside even if it is 98 degrees.  Now I take notes when reading any magazines.  Good practice for using SEO and writing titles and descriptions for Online Selling.
