Santa’s Resting Place Was Found

Cover the kids’ ears for this one!

Archaeologists say they've discovered the tomb of Santa Claus. It's not at the North Pole but rather in southern Turkey, where the original Saint Nicolas lived 17-hundred years ago. A saint who was beloved for his generosity, Saint Nick is said to have given away his wealth to work as a monk with the poor. On his feast day in December, people used to leave out shoes so that he'd come to put coins in them overnight. The man morphed into a legend and eventually became Father Christmas over the next thousand years. Of course, his current popular form as a jolly old man in red is mostly thanks to the 19th Century poem that starts "Twas the night before Christmas" and an aggressive 20th Century marketing campaign.
