Santa Claus


Santa Claus
Papá Noel, Santa Claus, San Nicolás, Viejo Pascuero, son los nombres con los que se conoce en el mundo hispano al personaje mítico que según la cultura occidental ofrece regalos a los niños por Navidad. Papá Noel es un personaje inspirado en un sacerdote cristiano de etnia griega llamado Nicolás, que vivió en el siglo IV en Anatolia, en los valles de Licia (actualmente en territorio del estado deTurquía). Era una de las personas más veneradas por los cristianos de la Edad Media, del que aún hoy se conservan sus reliquias en la basílica de Bari (Italia).
