The Secrets of Santa Claus
Christmas Day is coming. We can enjoy our happiest time in the year. Santa Claus will be undoubtedly the most busy and famous one. We all believe that we have already known enough about him. Does Santa Claus have other secrets? Definitely yes!
1, Where can you find him?
Where is Santa Claus? What we know about is that he is in the North Pole. Some people even said that Santa Claus is from Rovaniemi, Finland. Is that really true? If your kid was very curious about Santa Claus and wanted to find Santa Claus, how would you answer him? I am afraid that the answer will depends on the age of the kid.
Each year, before Christmas Day, there will be well furnished grotto for Santa in large shopping centers, garden and community center. For kids who are 2-3 years old, their parents will tell them that they will take them to see Santa Claus. The parents take the kids to the grotto and spend a few pounds to take a picture with the Santa Claus and get a small gift. For those who are 5-6 or even 7-8 years old, they may know that the Santa in the shopping center is not true. If they insist on going to find the real one, the parents may have no idea about what to do. For those older kids, the parents should be ready to tell them the truth.
2, What is the mail address of him?
Each year, children will write a letter to him and tell him the favorite gift they want. Traditionally, the kids only need to write down this address” Father Christmas, North Pole”, then throw the letter to the back of the fireplace. The wind will send the letter to Santa.
But now, British children can send the letters to the following address:
Tell you a little secret: this is a special mailbox of British Royal Post. Each year, they all received about 750,000 letters from children and they said that all the letters will be forwarded to Santa Claus and all children can receive a reply.
In recent years, lazy children can also send e-mail to him! The problem is that his email address is constantly changing (the Internet in the North Pole may be not well-developed). Before sending it, you need to Google the email address.
Although I am not a young kid anymore, I also hope that I can receive a present from him. If my dream came true, I prefer that Santa can send me a backpack bag which I have been longing for a long time.
3, What’s the real identity of him?
Saint Nicholas is said to be the prototype of Santa Claus. According to the legend, there was a poor old man who was afraid that if he could not afford the dowry, no one would like to marry his three daughters. Saint Nicholas was informed of his troubles, hoping to help them. On Christmas Eve, the three daughters hanged the socks by the fireplace. Nicholas threw coins to the socks through the chimney.
After the news being spread, people began to hang socks, expecting to receive the gift from saints. Later on, the task of delivering the gifts falls to today’s Father Christmas or Santa Claus. Now, before Christmas Day, people will put the Christmas socks at the fireplace. If you do not have a fireplace, you can put socks attached to the windows or hang them in the door. The purpose is to make him notice them and do not forget to leave you a gift.
4, How old is he?
Santa Claus is a legend and a symbol, so his age is hard to say. If you want to count, then the prototype was Saint Nicholas who was a good bishop living in the 4th century. From the 4th century to the present, it has been 17 centuries. Therefore, he is more than 1,700 years old. But it may not be true. As for his exactly age we are afraid that only Mrs. Santa Claus knows.
