    Santa



    FAIL

    Santa Claus, its closer to the original Dutch 'Sinterklaas' which is connected to Saint Nicholas who is the patron saint of children and is where we get the gift giving tradition from.

    Seems more appropriate than 'Father Christmas' which has more connections to pagan festivals than anything to do with present giving or children or families.

    where do you think the term "Santa" comes from?

    Officially with the kids, Father Christmas, but if we're just talking quick about him we call him Santa because it's easier to say - that's what my 7yr old daughter informs me anyway!!

    Babbabooey;3658484

    where do you think the term "Santa" comes from?



    The name Santa Claus came from the Dutch version of the name, "Sint Klaas" or "Sinterklaas,"

    I think you will find THAT is where it came from !

    But you don't say "Sint Klaas" or "Sinterklaas" do you? You say S A N T A, which comes from over the pond.

    :roll:

    The American version of St. Nicholas, or Santa Claus originally came from the Dutch version called Sint Klaas. The Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam (New York) brought this fun and lively tradition (some even say cult) to America.

    You lose, go home, farewell
