5 Santa Claus Trivia You Probably Didn’t Know!
Christmas in the Philippines is influenced by our Catholic background and western tales. One of our most-loved characters is probably Santa Claus! Who does not know Santa Claus of House North Pole, First of His Name, the list maker, protector of children, Père Noël in French, Sinter Klaas in Dutch, and the Father of Christmas! (Move over, Daenerys Targaryen!)
Aside from knowing his love language (ehem gift-giving), we’ve round up 5 more trivia about Santa Claus you probably didn’t know!
Santa Claus Dates Back to the 3rd Century!
The legend of Santa Claus can be traced back to a monk named Nicolas, who is believed to have sold his inheritance to help the sick and the needy in the 3rd century. We love a charitable man, don’t we?
Santa Claus was born in Turkey!
Saint Nicholas was believed to be born in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey, in 280 A.D. Imagine camels instead of reindeers? Now that’s an image we’d like to see more of!
Santa Claus is the hero of women and children!
Legend has it that the real Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas helped three poor women from being sold to slavery or prostitution by paying for their dowry so they can get married. Eventually, he is believed to be the protector of sailors and children.
Santa Claus has 9 reindeers!
Santa Claus’ beloved helpers are named Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph! Rudolph and Santa, name a more iconic duo. I’ll wait!
Santa Claus loves cookies and milk!
As he goes about leaving Christmas gifts for all the good boys and girls, Santa Claus loves to gobble up the cookies and milk that the children leave for him! After all, the gift-giver wants a treat for himself too! Somebody give this man a list of online sellers that deals in cookie currency! Hohoho!
