Words and Their Stories: Santa Claus

Santa Claus is someone who will remain in the hearts of children forever.
He is the make-believe person
who brings toys and other gifts to children at Christmas.
To grown-ups, he is a special symbol of good will and selfless giving.

Santa Claus also has some other names:
Saint Nicholas, St. Nick, Kris Kringle, Pelznickel.

Two of his names -- Santa Claus and Saint Nicholas --
both come from the Dutch who settled in New York long ago.

The Dutch believed Saint Nikolaas gave gifts to children.
They honored this kindly saint with a yearly festival on December sixth.
The English-speaking people who lived nearby greatly enjoyed Dutch festivals.
And they brought the Saint and the custom of giving gifts
into their own celebration at Christmas time.

For centuries, the body's blood has been linked closely with the emotions.
People who show no human emotions or feelings, for example,
are said to be cold-blooded.
Cold-blooded people act in cruel ways.
They may do brutal things to others, and not by accident.
