The ultimate place for amazing Santa figurines
The tradition revolving Santa Claus differs from country to country. The European continent made the tale of Santa coming in through the chimney a very popular story with the children. Although many homes do not have chimneys but the story has not lost its appeal. Earlier tales state that Santa would toss coins through the windows and if the windows were locked he would then come through the chimney and hence be covered in soot. In Canada and America, the children leave a cookie and a glass of milk for Santa; in Australia and Britain he is given mince pie and beer or sherry. In countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark children leave Santa Claus rice porridge. The Irish leave Santa some Guinness or milk and some mince pies or Christmas puddings.
It is believed that Santa lived in an enchanted place far from the reach of any human being. His home is basically a work place where he sorts out gifts for children depending on how good they have been throughout the year. As per popular beliefs in America; Santa Claus is said to live in a magical house located in the North Pole.
Children usually write letters to Santa telling him that they have been good and that he should bring them things of their choice. A recent study has revealed that girls tend to write long and polite letters to Santa and they tend to request gifts for other people. There are many postal services that permit children to send letters to Santa. Most of the time the letters are answered by other volunteers or by people from the post office; it is observed that wring letters to Santa can be very educative too. In today’s world we have people dressing up like Santa and visiting shopping malls and handing out goodies to the children and keeping the legend alive.
The History of Santa Claus
The other names for Santa Claus are Santa, Kris Kingle, Father Christmas and Saint Nicholas. He is considered to be a very important figure who brings lovely gifts for children on Christmas eve. In some of the European countries kids receive gifts on St Nicholas day which is on the 19th or 6th December. The present day figure of Santa is inspired from the Dutch version of Santa Claus known as Sinterklaas.
The general depiction of Santa Claus is that of a chubby bearded man, dressed in red and wearing spectacles. He is very seldom depicted as a man with no moustache. The song Santa Claus is coming to town further popularized the image of Santa Claus with the young children. He is believed to travel on a flying sleigh pulled by flying reindeers. He delivers gifts to all children with a lot of help from the elves that live in his house. There have been several films that have shown Santa Claus delivering gifts to the children on Christmas Eve. He is believed to live in the North Pole and usually greets people by saying ho ho ho. There have been several debates on how parents are deceiving children into believing that Santa is real and that children will actually grow up developing strange ideas. Some free thinkers in the modern thinkers actually support the make believe tale in Santa Claus, stating that it is a fantastic way of teaching children that Santa is yet another human being who exercises compassion. Parents can actually teach children a lesson on compassion through this tale.
