NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the countdown to Christmas begins, 123greetings.com brings the story of the real Santa Claus. Saint Nicholas was a bishop who lived in the fourth century AD in Myra (Turkey). He was a very kindhearted man and had a reputation for helping the poor and giving secret gifts to people who needed it. With time Santa came to be remembered with different names across the world. In UK he was called "Father Christmas" while the French remembered him as "Pere Noel". In the early USA, he was "Kris Kringle" and after much amalgamation we finally came to remember Saint Nicholas as Santa Claus.
