The most wonderful time of the year is slowly approaching. It’s the time when family members from across the world gather around to spend much needed holiday time with one another. Christmas also marks the time where children create their wish list in hopes of Santa Claus granting their holiday dreams. We all know about the jolly man in the red suit that leaves gifts under the tree at night, but do you really know the origins surrounding Santa Claus? Let’s take a look at some interesting facts about Santa Claus that you might not have known about.
The origins of Santa Claus are based on Saint Nicholas. Saint Nicholas was the Bishop of Myra in Anatolia (Turkey) and was widely known for delivering gifts to people in dire need.
We have Coca-Cola to thank for making Santa’s red costume famous. The company first introduced Santa wearing the red suit back in 1931 in one of their ad campaigns.
