    I know it's an old thread, still.....

    Lucy Van Pelt: Look, Charlie, let's face it. We all know that Christmas is a big commercial racket. It's run by a big eastern syndicate, you know.
    Charlie Brown: (shouting in desperation) Isn't there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?

    Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you. Lights, please. (A spotlight shines on Linus.) "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men'". That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie brown.

    Father Christmas/ Santa Claus = Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of children. His saint day is actually on December 6th, though. A legend claims that he saved three girls from the fate of going onto prostitution by dropping three bags of gold down their chimney; they landed in the girls' stockings, which were hanging up by the hearth to dry.

    Lots of other factors contribute towards the existance of Father Christmas, though, such as the old germanic myth of the ancient god Odin/Woden, who rode through the sky at Yule (I think), rewarding or punishing people according to their actions in the past year.
