Santa Claus is said to bring gifts to 'good' children on Christmas. The saint is contemporarily depicted as a jolly man, sporting a white beard, a broad smile, a big belly and the red and white ‘Santa’ costume. He is often believed to come from the north pole and deliver gifts to those good children who leave out their wish lists on the stockings by the fireplace. A whole range of Christmas carols are based on this fatherly figure. His popularity gained immense prominence in today's idea of Christmas, so much so that Christmas, for many, is often synonymous to Santa Claus.
There have been many heated debates about the remains of the saint. This is because his physical remains are considered relics. Other such similar debates have arisen over the relics of other saints like the remains of Mary Magdalene and St Peter, have also been ‘discovered’ in different locations over a period of time.
Whether this location is St Nicholas's ‘final’ resting place is yet to be authenticated. And just like his debated existence, Santa Claus’s location is ever changing.
