The Santa Clause that we know today does not accurately reflect the St. Nicholas of history, to whom he owes his very existence. In fact, if the two met, I bet the conversation would be brief, after all, they wouldn’t have much in common.
Check out these two links so that you are able to remind Santa Clause during the ‘Holidays’ of his true identity.
- If you have time, read through this GREAT article on the life of St. Nicholas. It has plenty of interesting stories.
- If your a bit limited, at least watch this short video which addresses his life and the difficulties with modern day Santa Clause.
Happy Saint Nicholas Day!
