Share: Twitter

Santa Claus: Although often associated with the Norse Sun-god, Kris Kringle, the initial origins of Santa’s capabilities probably had much to do with the myths surrounding the Aryan god, Odin, Lord of th~ Winds.

Legend contends that He was a nocturnal god capable of flying through the stormiest clouds on His gray eight-legged horse, materializing and vanishing at will and that he held the whole of magic-even its forbidden secrets-in the palm. of his hand.

Such origi~ explains why Santa flies through the sky, is never seen, knows who’s been naughty and who has been nice, and has a bag, of toys that never runs dry.
