Who is Santa Claus?

Santa Claus is a popular and significant individual/figure in the lives of several children — including their parents, who should first explain who Santa is before answering the question, "Is there a Santa really?" after a few years. Meanwhile, the same parents have taken on the role of Santa behind the scenes. It is treated as a major responsibility.

In this article, we have given the story of Santa’s Christmas. This is the best Christmas story for kids. Let us start reading the story.

Santa’s Christmas: The Story

With a clear blue sky and snow-covered treetops, it was a lovely December day. Christmas was in the air, but all was calm in Santa's lodge. The normal flurry of activity surrounding the preparation of Christmas gifts had ceased because Santa had become ill. As he laid in his bed, Santa pondered, "Oh dear, what will the children say if they don't get presents this year?"

He was frightened when he heard a disturbance outside. When he peeked out his window, he saw his four reindeer waiting patiently like they always did. However, they appeared to be out of breath, as if they had just returned after a lengthy journey. Santa couldn't believe what he saw when he got a closer look. A lengthy train of sleds trailed the reindeer, carrying small children dressed in a rainbow of colours.

They hopped out onto the snow, one by one, and made their way to Santa's lodge. There was a knock on the main door not after a long. "Come in," Santa said, his face lit up with excitement. A little girl entered, holding something soft in her arms. She started, "I heard that you were sick, Mr. Santa." "So, to keep you company, I'm giving you my teddy bear." "Thank you, little Emma," Santa said, knowing each child's name.

Then a young boy with a red bundle in his arms walked in. He said, "We knew you were sick, Papa Santa." "So, to keep you warm during the winter, my family sewed this quilt for you." "What a lovely notion, Paul," Santa said as he patted his head.

One by one, the youngsters entered through Santa's door, each bearing a particular present to convey their best wishes to him. Cookies, pies, socks, gloves, novels, jigsaw puzzles, and even a little Christmas tree were among the items on display. Santa cried, "Christmas delivered to my doorstep!" "Come on, let's share these great gifts together." And he gathered the children in a large circle about him.

"Which present did you like the best, Santa?" Emma was the first to speak up. "It's the care and love that every one of you, my lovely little children, has shown me today." And that is the most amazing gift of them all!" Santa smiled as he spoke. He admired the eager expressions on everyone's faces. "This, my little ones, is the true meaning of Christmas," Santa explained.

Santa then threw a large, heartfelt holiday hug across each of the children.

FAQs on Santa’s Christmas

1. Who was Santa Claus?

Santa Claus was not always a cheerful old man. He didn't always wear a huge red suit, and he didn't always have long white whiskers.

Santa Claus was a child long before he dwelt in the North Pole and before his annual Christmas visits brought joy to all the children of the world. He used to be a normal infant boy named Nicholas. The baby boy seemed like any other, but his parents had high hopes for their only child. He was given the name Nicholas, which means "people's hero."

2. How does the Santa look like?

Santa Claus is typically depicted as a portly, jolly, white-bearded man wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red trousers, red hat with white fur, and black-coloured leather belt and boots, by carrying a bag full of gifts for kids. He is frequently seen laughing in a manner that sounds like "ho ho ho."

Due to the tremendous influence of the 1823 poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas," this particular image has become popular in Canada and the United States at the time of the 19th century. Thomas Nast, a caricaturist and political cartoonist, was also involved in the construction of Santa's look. Through song, radio, television, children's books, family Christmas customs, films, and advertising, this image has been preserved and promoted.
