Christmas is only a few weeks away, and it’s time to start planning your gifts for the year. While you are no doubt busy buying gifts for your family and friends, you might also be wondering what you’ll receive from Santa this year. The big question though is whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year? Let’s find out in our quiz today, which will reveal what you are going to get from Santa this Christmas. Before we get started, let’s head back in time to learn more about how this tradition came to be around the world.
Santa Claus, who is also known by various other names, such as Father Christmas, originated in the Western Christmas culture. He is said to give good children toys on Christmas Eve so that they wake up in the morning with special gifts to enjoy and unwrap. However, if kids have been bad during the year, they are believed only to receive a lump of coal. Santa travels around the world with this reindeer, who pull his sleigh in the air. The Christmas elves in the North Pole help him to build the toys that he gives everyone in the huge workshop that they work in together throughout the year. Children around the world look forward to waking up on Christmas Day each year to see what Santa brings them and play with their new toys each year.
Santa Claus, as we know him today, is based on the tradition of Saint Nichola, Father Christmas from England, and Sinterklaas from the Dutch tradition. We all know what Santa looks like, with his white beard, red coat with white fur, red trousers, glasses, and red hat. This is all finished off with his black boots and belts and a huge bag of gifts ready to give the children of the world. We often hear him say his classic “ho ho ho” as he’s coming down the chimney. This image of Santa traces back to the poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas, and there have been images of him appearing over the years on television and in advertisements that gave him the appearance we know and love today.
A fun fact about the image of Santa that we know today is that it’s heavily influenced by The Coca-Cola Company. They used red and white colors to promote their brand, and Santa was placed in these colors too. Different drinks companies have used Santa over the years to promote their drinks. It’s no surprise as he’s such a warm and loveable character who gives the spirit of Christmas to everyone each year. Children love visiting Santa in grottos across the country each year, where he welcomes them into his home and gives them a little treat to get them ready for the big day.
