An Evolution

Have you ever wondered how St. Nicolas morphed into Santa Claus and then into a spokesperson?

Fr. Dwight Longenecker tells the interesting story here:

Whatever Happened To St. Nicholas?

“How did the fourth century heretic slapping bishop from Southern Turkey wind up being a fat, Coco Cola swigging American Elf?”

I take no credit for the article that I found on Fr. Longenecker’s Blog, that I linked to above.  It is his work, not mine.
