Born from the Chicano civil rights movement, Pancho Claus is a mostly Texas thing

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; He usually has black hair and a black beard, sometimes just a mustache. Like Santa, he wears a hat — though often it's a sombrero.

He dons a serape or a poncho and, in one case, a red and black zoot suit. And he makes his grand entrance on lowriders or Harleys or led by a pack of burros instead of eight reindeer.
