The REAL TRUTH About Santa ClausAccording to The Encyclopedia of Religion, in a revealing article, said, “Santa Claus is an American invention; he combines features of the traditional children’s saint, Nicholas of Myra, with some elements of the Germanic fire god, Thor, who fought the giants of ice and snow from his home in the polar regions.” The Wordsworth Dictionary of Saints adds that, the “Dutch settlers in North America created the modern figure of Santa Claus by linking Saint Klaes with the Scandinavian god Thor, figure of reward and punishment whose chariot was driven by goats.”
Thor is a Pagan god, and what the Gentiles sacrifice, the Bible says, “they sacrifice to demons” (1 Corinthians 10:20). Thor then, is a demon. And according to the above articles the Dutch took the attributes of a demon and combined them with the attributes of a Catholic saint, and came up with Santa Claus. Why would a demon take on the name of a saint, unless he wanted to transform “himself into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Evil, if it appeared evil, would fool no one. Yet the Bible says that Satan “deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9).
Thor, as we have said, was the god of fire. This explains why our modern day Santa Claus is often associated with fire. He enters the house by the chimney, and leaves his gifts by the fireplace. Satan also is associated with fire, “the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). Nor is it an accident that Santa’s suit matches in color to that of Satan himself, that “fiery red dragon” (Revelation 12:3).
