PostSubject: St. Nicholas   Sat Dec 12, 2009 11:51 am

The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas,
who was born during the 3rd century in the village of Patara.

At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents,
who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young.





Obeying the teachings of Jesus to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor,"
Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering.

He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man.
Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to the those in need,
his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.


Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas
suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned.

The prisons were so full of bishops, priests, and deacons, there was no room for the real criminals
—murderers, thieves and robbers. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325.
He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church, where a unique relic,
called manna, formed in his grave. This liquid substance, said to have healing powers, fostered the
growth of devotion to Nicholas.

The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th.

Very interesting. Manna was the food that God provided the Jews when they were roaming the desert for 40 years.

Some people thought Coke invented Santa Claus but I think what they did is popularized and gave him the look we see now.

Santa is bald!

Written by IainB

Story written: 15 December 2008
Tags: Santa, bald

Santa on vacation in Maui. Paparazzi pictures from Lapland have shown that Santa Claus is balder than a politician's lie.

The spirit of Christmas was spotted pottering in his garden prior to his busiest day of the year, tending his marigolds wearing a Dolci and Gabana red suit with ermine trim. What he did not have was any hair on his head at all, apart from eyebrows.

Diligent reporting turned up that Nicolas (as he is called) buys his grey mane from Debenhams, and pops in once a year, around June, to pick up the curly locks and beard for the coming festive season.

"I'd always suspected the beard was a fake," said Adam Eneve, a six year old brat emerging from a grotto in Oldham town centre, on discovering the news. "I could see the wire hooking it onto his ears."

Father Christmas was unavailable for comment, but a close friend who prefers to be called Mary has come forward to defend the giver of presents.

"The beard and hair is a trademark, you know," said Mary. "When he started going bald in the early seventies he was very upset. His friend, Rudolf, suggested faking it, and that's what he did, starting with a toupee, but more recently moving onto a full on wig with beard attachment. At first he didn't need to beard, but after I accidentally bought him a super-powered ear and nose hair trimmer from Bettaware that sucked all the hair of his chin and top lip, he had to get the bushy grey beard whilst buying his wig."

One advantage that Santa has found with the new shiny dome is that he can now travel incognito while purchasing next year's presents in the January sales. "He hasn't been mobbed in years," Mary confided. "And he's loving it! I never really liked the beard anyway: it tickled."
