The character of Santa Claus is based on which saint?
Have you ever heard about St. Nicholas? He was a Bishop who lived in the 4th century AD in a place now called Turkey. He was born in a very rich family, yet he was unspoiled creature and had a heart of gold. He has always been helping the poor and he still does! He is considered the Father of the gift-giving tradition.
Today we know him as Father Christmas, Kris Kringle and, finally, Santa Claus.
