|: In the US, most people here celebrate Santa Claus! I dont know if most kids know about the religion part, just presents. :-D
Santa Claus has also religious origins! He is inspired by
Nikolaus von Myra (* between 270 und 286 in Patara; † 6. December 326, 345 oder 351).
Alas, the Coca Cola company highjacked Santa Claus and changed his outfit to their corporate colors. :-(
