How long has Santa Claus been around? Far more than Christmas trees or candy canes, Santa Claus sparks controversy among Christians. Many believers reject the idea of the kindly old gentleman in the bright red suit because it takes away the primary focus of Christmas: celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior. Certainly when the focus of Christmas becomes children's expectations of gift receiving, using St. Nicholas as the agent of distribution, we have missed the true meaning of Christmas. Unfortunately, the original Nicholas and his godly example is lost in the controversy. St. Nicholas was a Christian priest who lived in Myra, in Asia Minor (modern Turkey), from 280-343 AD. He became Bishop of Myra, and was known for his generosity. He did not like to be seen giving gifts, so the children were told to go to sleep quickly or he would not come. He also is known for giving gifts of gold to a poor man's three daughters, placing the bags of gold inside their stockings, which the young ladies had left by the fire to dry. The name "Santa Claus" was derived from the Dutch "Sinter Klaus" pronunciation of St. Nicholas. When Dutch settlers landed in New Amsterdam (now New York), their "Sinter Klaus" celebration in December came with them. Interestingly, in many other European countries, and Latin America, Santa Claus is not even the deliverer of gifts to the children. Other figures fill the role. Nevertheless, the original (the REAL) St. Nicholas did demonstrate, "it is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35).
