Beloved around the world, Santa Claus is also present in West Africa, where some adults dress as Father Christmas, or "Papa Bronya." This is especially popular at parties, as Santa is the one who hands out gifts. Ali Mohammed depicts the benevolent character as an African mask. Carved by hand of sese wood, this image of "Father Christmas" brings a Ghanaian presence to holiday decor.
