Where Santa Claus Really Came From

Many ancient cultures had a day of gift-giving, but did you know a lot of them also developed Santa-like characters? Many of these blended together to create the modern-day Santa Claus. For instance:
  •  The real Saint Nicholas, a Greek-Christian bishop, was a generous man and famous for his gifts to the poor
  • Sinterklaas was a fictional Dutch winter holiday figure who rode from house to house on a white horse
  • The major Germanic god Odin rode a gray horse in the sky
  •  Scandinavian Tomte was a short, bearded man who wore gray clothes and a red hat
  • A goat represented gift-giving for Iceland and Finland 
  • Father Christmas evolved from the Ghost of Christmas Present in Charles Dickens' book A Christmas Carol
Thanks for reading, and have fun at your next party!
