(Quiz) Can You Tell The Difference Between St. Nicholas And Santa Claus?

by Advent and Christmas, Quizzes

St. Nicholas is not a jolly, chubby man dressed in red who brings gifts and lives in the North Pole.  And while there are many popular versions to his story,  today, we want to introduce you to who this great saint known as “Santa Claus” really was.

This saint was a bishop born in the city of Parara of Licia in an ancient province in Asia Minor.  When he was young, he went on a pilgrimage to Egypt and Palestine.  A little after his return, he was named bishop of Mira, capital of Licia.  He was characterized by his charity and love for children.  During the persecution of Diocletian, St. Nicholas was sent to prison for faith but was then set free and became a great defender of the faith.

Without further ado, we give you this fun quiz! The better we learn, the more we can give Christmas back it’s true meaning.
