Since 1889, Mrs. Claus has been shown in media as a kind, sincere, gentle white­haired elderly lady baking cookies somewhere in the background of the Santa Claus life. She sometimes assists in toy production and takes care of Santa's elves. It is worth noting that, when not portrayed as white­haired or elderly, she is often shown to have red hair. She usually chooses a red fur dress. Her reappearance in popular media in the 1960s began with the children's book How Mrs. Santa Claus Saved Christmas, by Phyllis McGinley. Today, Mrs. Claus is commonly seen in cartoons, on greeting cards as a side-character to the throned Santa Claus. Her personality tends to be fairly consistent; she is usually seen as a considerate, caring, serious and patient woman, often in contrast to Santa himself, who can sometimes be impatient, determined and joyful.
