Interesting Christmas Info - Santa Claus

saint nicholas and christmasDid you know…

The traditional Christmas icon Santa Claus originated from Dutch folk tales of Saint Nicholas (Sinterklaas), who gave gifts on December 6 instead of December 25. 

Another Dutch custom is to hang stockings with the belief that if you leave a shoe packed with food for Saint Nicholas’ donkey, a small gift will be left in return.
