Starting with St. Nicholas of whom Santa Claus is not based off of instead Santa Claus was a kidnapper who would use kids as sacrifices to the great tree. The great tree a.k.a a pine tree in which we use as Christmas tree was a symbol of life to the Anglo people. Gift offering and receiving was originally practiced as giving the tree a sacrifice in exchange for a gift or to be forgiven. The star on top of the tree is a symbol of divinity. It makes one ponder on religion. In my opinion, religion is a primal translation of the creations of God. Let me stop here because this change in subject is for another blog.
