Since 1889, Mrs. Claus has been generally depicted in media as a fairly heavy-set, kindly, white-haired elderly female baking cookies somewhere in the background of Santa Claus mythos. She sometimes assists in toy production, and oversees Santa’s elves. It is worth noting that, when not portrayed as white-haired or elderly, she is often shown to have red hair. This could be because red/ginger hair is the color that most commonly fades to white with age.
