St. Nikolaos of Myra

Nationality: Greek

Born : AD 270 (the Ides of March) in Patara, Lycia et Pamphylia, Asia Minor (Turkey)

Died: 6 December 343 (aged 73) in Myra, Lycia

Honored: Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, Anglicanism, Lutheranism

Canonized: Pre-Congregation

Shrine: Basilica di San Nicola, Bari, Ital

Admired for his piety and kindness, St. Nicholas became the subject of many legends. It is said that he gave away all of his inherited wealth and traveled the countryside helping the poor and sick. He was known to leave gold couns in shoes of the poor left out for his visits, and sometimes dropped a bag of gold down their chimney.

Another of the best known of the St. Nicholas stories is that he saved three poor sisters from being sold into slavery or prostitution by their father by providing them with a dowry so that they could be married. Over the course of many years, Nicholas's popularity spread and he became known as the protector of children and sailors. His feast day is celebrated on the anniversary of his death, December 6. This was traditionally considered a lucky day to make large purchases or to get married. By the Renaissance, St. Nicholas was the most popular saint in Europe

Sorry pal, but that is the history behind the real person we have evolved into Santa Clause, an anglicization of Sinterklaas in Dutch = St. Nikolas/Nickolas/etc. His feast day of December 6th is very close to the December 13th feast of Santa Lucia in northern Europe, and eventually he was worked into the latters pre-Christmas traditions.

All there is about Saint Nicholas is stories and legends. Saint Nicholas aside, Santa Claus figure isn't real. Like Jesus. There are no flying reindeers. There are no elves. Get over it.

The video starts off with bad math making everything else false. Santa is not the only person to see the reindeer. His elves do too!
