History Behind Santa Coloring Pages Ideas

Santa Claus does not appear without any reason behind it. There is a long history behind Santa Claus and its tradition. In this modern era, we may see Santa Claus as a jolly man in red who brings joy to every kid.

Back in the 3rd century, there was Saint Nicholas who walked the earth. He became the patron saint of kids. Saint Nicholas was born around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra (modern-day Turkey). St. Nicholas was popular for his piety and kindness. The tale said that St. Nicholas gave away all of his inherited wealth, so he traveled the countryside in order to help poor and sick people.
