If a person asks St Nicholas to pray for them is that saying in a sense that Santa Claus is real? by ! Q: God bless you.

A: The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to the those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships. Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. He died on December 6, AD 343 in Myra.The name Santa Claus just means St. Nicholas.You can always ask St. Nicholas or Santa Claus to intercede for you. Some people distorted the real story of St. Nicholas and made some false stories to fit their fantasies. That is why many think that Santa Clause is a lie, or a myth.Some of the stories are as follows: CLARK MOORE:In 1822, Clement Clark Moore, a poet and professor of theology, published the poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (also known as "The Night Before Christmas"). Moore's Santa is a jolly old elf who flies around in a miniature sleigh with eight tiny reindeer. Moore even named the reindeer by the names we know them today, and the method by which Santa returns up the chimney. THOMAS NAST: this illustrator and caricaturist who created the donkey and elephant images to depict the US Democratic and Republican parties, contributed his own vision of Santa for Harper's Weekly magazine from 1860 until the late 1880s. Nast depicted Santa in a red, fur-trimmed suit and a wide leather belt. Each year he added more details to his version of the Santa legend, including the home-workshop at the North Pole and the Naughty & Nice list. In 1885, Nast sketched two children looking at a map of the world and tracing Santa's journey from the North Pole to the United States. The following year, the American writer, George P. Webster, took up this idea, explaining that Santa's toy factory and "his house, during the long summer months, was hidden in the ice and snow of the North Pole." HADDON SUNDBLOM: In 1931 Haddon Sundblom presented Santa as a plump human rather than an elf, with a jovial face and big beard in a Coca-Cola advertisement. (Coca-Cola was a client of Sundblom's advertising agency from 1924 to until his death in 1976.) Today, it is Sundblom's Santa that slips down chimneys around the world. St.Nicholas was real but there are some stories about him that are false.The common one being that he is this big jolly guy who wears red. Such stupid fantasies have contributed in making St. Nicholas a myth and a lie. St Nicholas is no myth and no lie but the big guy in red who has reindeer's is a total lie and it is in no way related to the saint. Thank You for your question. God Bless you as well.

If Santa claimed to have written the books on St Nicholas? by Cooley Q: Would he be automatically promoted from fictional to non-fictional? Or would he still be non-existent?

A: Santa is real. He brings me presents and eats the cookies I leave out for him on Christmas.

A: i would go to Turkey so i can also visit house of Virgin Marry where she spend her last years and world's first church in Hatay. Also weather is better.

Who was St. Nicholas and how is he related to the modern day Santa Claus? by True Believer Q: Everything I know about the historic St. Nicholas comes from Wikipedia. Where does the modern Santa Claus come from?

A: Saint Nicholas was a real saint from Mira (Turkey) Years after his death he respawned as Sinterklaas, a "saint" who'se holiday still is celebrated on 5 december in Holland, Belgium and parts of France. When people from these countries emigrated to the US they took the tradition with them where it merged with the British Father Christmas. The modern Santa (red coat and beard) was invented by the Coca Cola company, and the rest is on Wikipedia

St..Nicholas? by lauren is gone Q: I need a Short summary about St.Nicholas Just a short Summary about the maine details.

A: There are a lot of places online that will give you some details about the real St. Nicholas. http://encyclopedia.jrank.org/Cambridge/entries/053/St-Nicholas.html which says: "Bishop of Myra, Lucia, and patron saint of Russia, widely associated with the feast of Christmas. He was imprisoned under Diocletian and released under Constantine, and his supposed relics were conveyed to Bari in 1087. He is the patron of youth, merchants, sailors, travellers, and thieves. His identification with Father Christmas began in Europe, and spread to America, where the name was altered to Santa Claus. The tradition of exchanging gifts on Christmas Day derives from a legend of his benevolence. Feast day 6 December." http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/newsletter/christmas/nick.html http://www.eldrbarry.net/rabb/folk/stnick.htm http://www.souledout.org/christmas/santanicholas/santanicholas.html http://www.stnicholasgoc.org/stnickbio.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Nicholas I hope this helps.
