Where did Saint Nick come from?

Report as

okay, the origin of Santa Claus originates with St. Nicholas, a man who lived during the time when a man named Arius, was spreading around a heresy, on the Feast of Christmas, St. Nicholas would throw important items such as food into peoples houses through the windows, perhaps the funniest story about him though, is the legend that he punched Arius in the face for creating and supporting a heresy, there is actually a funny picture that is a picture of St Nick and it says "i'm here to deliver presents, and punch heretics in the face, and i just ran out of presents". The name Santa Claus is actually a corruption by the English people, of his name in Dutch, which is pronounced more like sinter clouse.

Saint Nicolas was a man in ancient Turkey who, the legend goes, gave three young women enough gold to have a proper dowry so that they could get married. The way he gave them the gold may sound familiar- he sent it through their window as they slept. The next morning was the first Christmas morning!
