Saint Nick vs Santa Claus

The Church of the Tasty Griot invites one and all to our next Sabbath service. We worship on Saturday, we don’t have a pagan Sunday service. The sermon will be: Saint Nick vs Santa Claus, challenging another lie and deception.
Saint Nick was black; Santa Claus is white.
Saint Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D in the village of Patara in Turkey, of very wealthy ethnic black Anatolians of the ancient Roman Empire. Saint Nick was a real person and a black Muuhr. Pope Mithilades and Peter, the first apostle, were also Muurish black men of African descent.
Much admired for his piety and kindness, St. Nicholas became the subject of many legends. He lost both of his parents as a young man and reportedly used his inherited wealth to help the poor and sick in the countryside. A devout Christian, he later served as bishop of Myra, a city that is now called Demre. One of the best known of the St. Nicholas stories is that he saved three poor sisters from being sold into slavery or prostitution, by their father, by providing them with a dowry so that they could be married. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, repentant thieves, children, brewers, pawnbrokers, and students in various cities and countries around Europe.
Several sources state St. Nicholas is believed to have died on December 6, 343. Over the years, stories of his miracles and work for the poor spread to other parts of the world. St. Nicholas went through many transformations in America: the Dutch shortened form of Sint Nikolaas, Sinterklaas became Santa Claus, and instead of giving gifts on December 6, he became a part of the Christmas holiday. Once a kind, charitable bishop, St. Nicholas has been replaced by the Santa Claus we know today.
The Aryan Santa Claus is nothing but an idolatrous image of Odin, the god of the Goths and the Norsemen, created by two New Yorkers, Clement Clark Moore and Thomas Nast.
In the 1820 poem “An account of a visit from St. Nicholas” by Clement Clarke Moore, Santa Claus is described as a jolly, heavy man who comes down the chimney to leave presents for deserving children and drives a sleigh pulled by flying reindeers.
In 1881, adding to the St. Nicholas legend, political cartoonist Thomas Nast drew on Moore’s poem to create the first likeness that matches our modern image of Santa Claus. His cartoon, which appeared in Harper’s Weekly, depicted Santa as an obese, cheerful man with a full, white beard, holding a sack laden with toys for lucky children. It is Nast who gave Santa his bright red suit trimmed with white fur, North Pole workshop, elves, and his wife, Mrs. Claus.
Department stores and Coca-Cola got in on the action, giving birth to Rudolph. “The most famous reindeer of all” was born over a hundred years after his eight flying counterparts. The red-nosed wonder was the creation of Robert L. May, a copywriter at the Montgomery Ward department store. In 1939, May wrote a Christmas-themed story-poem to help bring holiday traffic into his store.
The reason for the season is reality and fact clearly proving once more that “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984
As always, keep your money in your pockets, the Church of the Tasty Griot doesn’t beg for or accept donations. We don’t have any mansion, private airplane, any Lamborghini to make payments on; we also don’t have mistresses to send on shopping sprees.
