WHO IS SANTA CLAUS? IS HE REAL OR MYTH?

Santa Claus, commonly associated with Christmas, is usually described as a large, greedy and cheerful man wearing red dress decorated with white d├ęcor. According to an American version and based to the legend, Santa Claus was short, lived in the North Pole with his wife, Mrs. Klaus , living with some dwarfs who make toys, and reindeer pulling his trunk or sled. While in the version or legend of Nordic, Santa Claus is known as Father Christmas or and it is said that the Claus couple live in Lapland, Finland. He also deals with bringing gifts to small children every Christmas by sliding in chimneys, and there are also reindeer pulling his sledge. The tradition originally came from Finland (Nordic countries) and spread to the world. It is believed that Santa Claus was created from the Dutch Sinterklaas celebrated on the eve of San Nicolas (December 5) in Netherlands. During the Christianization of Hermanic Europe, the Sinterklaas character may have related to one god called Odin which also associated with the pagan god celebrated every Yule and who led a Wild Hunt as a procession to demonize the heavens.
