Who is Santa Claus?

Do you know how the legend of Santa Claus started? It has reportedly been traced back to a monk named St. Nicholas, believed to have been born around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in what is present-day Turkey. Widely admired for his piety and benevolence, he was said to have given away all his inherited wealth and traveled the countryside, helping the poor and sick.

Legends grew from this beginning, evolving over time to the gift-bearing, "right jolly old elf" we know as Santa Claus today. Each culture has its own take on the tradition, and Santa goes by many names, including Father Christmas, Kris Kringle and Saint Nick. But the basics of the tale - a large, white-bearded man bringing gifts from the North Pole on his red sleigh pulled by reindeer - are a staple of the modern holiday for both religious and pagan Christmas celebrations.
