Santa's True Story

 The original Santa was a Roman-Catholic bishop, born around 270 as an only child to a rich family in  the present day Turkey. Remarkably pious from his early years, he devoted his life to the service among the poor and the needy of his day. On the death of his parents he decided to   give away his riches by secretly bestowing gifts and presents on poor people  . He did it in such a way that none of those who found them on doorsteps or window sills the following day, could recognize the giver.
