As told to Jeff Guinn
This week we've been learning about the origin of Santa Claus. One of our sources is a great book I discovered a few years ago. Reading this in December is one of my personal holiday traditions.
This is a really fun and informative book about the good Saint Nicholas born in Lycia (Modern day Turkey) about 280 A.D. and how he evolved into the jolly man we know and love today.
