Very interesting history on 'Santa'. I'd heard much of this, but never thought a lot about it.

Isn't it sad how he has become the focus of Christmas for so many. Sure it's fun to include 'Santa' in celebrating, but it would be wonderful to have Jesus be celebrated more.

Very good information about the history. I noticed a couple of tense changes, going from past to present in the same sentences. Good tie-in between the history and the actual reason for the season.
This was a very informative history lesson. Thank you.
Thank you for this. Our family used to celebrate St. Nicholas Day when our daughter was small. Sometimes I wish we still did. I have always enjoyed the story about him. You told it well.

Yes, thank you for the informational lesson. I didn't know most of that stuff. I like the way you sandwiched this lesson between the truth of Scripture.
