The month of December is half over and when the month of December is half passed, news starts coming that Christmas Day was celebrated with great pomp in Solan Convent School. Children dressed up as Santa Claus, or Santa Claus distributing toffees at Greenland Public Schools. That is, till now someone’s son became Ram, someone’s Krishna became someone’s son, someone’s son became Veer Shivaji and someone’s Guru Govind Singh. But who are those people whose children became Santa Claus? These are all those schools which will be able to ridicule Lord Shri Ram by doing Ramlila on Dussehra, but by the time of Christmas, Santa Claus ie an imaginary Buddha becomes a symbol of their faith.

That’s why this question! Because recently, a bishop in Noto, located in the Italian province of Sicily, told the children during an art festival that Santa Claus really does not exist, nor does he exist. Then what was there! The Bishop’s statement made headlines in the Sicilian media. It was discussed all over the province and across the country and around the world. This made the Vatican nervous and scolded the bishop that what you are saying, by this our years old business of conversion will be ruined. Then the bishop also apologized and covered up the matter.

But the question remains, who is this Santa Claus and what does he do? Why are little children made Santa in schools, is there any worship, prayer or conspiracy behind this? Because as soon as Christmas comes, why do millions of Santa Claus troops descend in the country? And the funny thing in this is that Hindu families also make their children Veer Shivaji Maharana Pratap Guru Gobind Singh or make Santa on Christmas day and also send those photos to relatives through social media, see our child has become Santa. Like someone has shot a big arrow or has become the President of a country?

In fact, the story behind the creation of Santa is told in such a way that 280 years after the birthday of Jesus, Saint Nicholas, born in the city of Mayna, Turkistan, is Santa Claus. Saint Nicholas grew up to become a Christian priest and later a bishop and later a saint. Apart from this, Nicholas was very fond of children and to help the poor children, he often gave them gifts and chocolates hidden in the night. That is, this story is told in many forms so that people understand that Nicholas was a very great saint, just as Mother Teresa is understood today.

But is this the complete truth? Or the truth is something else, was Nicholas really such a great saint that even today, children should be like him to praise him? Or why did Christianity feel the need to preach the imaginary old man, Santa Claus?

In fact, in the last decades of the 4th century and the 5th century, Jerusalem became a major central platform for determining the ways of Christianity. Many characters came in the lead roles on this stage. Started making statues of Jesus crucified. Many people were attached to this new imperialist policy. One of these was Jerome of Rome. He was the secretary of Bishop Damascus. Damascus is said to have been elected bishop after fierce violence because his men killed more than a hundred supporters of the opposing candidate. No one had got this position like this. However, a few years later, the office of the Bishop of Rome was officially called the Pope. As soon as Damasus became a bishop, efforts were made to convert Rome and the surrounding areas into a Christian pilgrimage site. The places related to the early days of Christianity were marked in Rome and the coating of fabricated tales on history was also started. In this connection, Damasus made a fictional creation of apostles who would take Christianity forward in Rome. Many imaginary gods were created. Like Jupiter, Bacchus, Apollo, Cupid, Mars, Mercury, Pluto etc and the goddesses were created Juno, Minerva, Siris, Flora, Fortuna, Diana, Venus. That is, on one side the hour of prayer, on the other hand, violence and slaughter. But still people were stricken by the violence of Damascus’ secretary Jerome, Christianity had become a bloody claw in their eyes.

So then a game was started from there named “Santa Claus” by this only Christianity was spread a lot. Now you understand this game i.e. on one side there was violence and on the other hand some of his people disguised as these imaginary saints were taken down to crush the pagan civilization. This was the period when in the Pagan community, if any Christian evangelical pastor was found during the day, then people used to catch and code. They went to Jerome and Damasus and told the whole story that people are very angry with Christianity, we cannot go.

It was then decided that changing army costumes called Santa Claus, they would secretly keep something outside the homes of poor pagans at midnight. It was like a miracle for the poor people of far flung areas, that is why the children would have been put to sleep early. Because if someone is found awake in any house, then Santa did not keep anything for fear of hut. Gradually the faith of the people started increasing on Christianity and when it was successfully used in Rome, then these Santas were sent to the next place.

That is, after this successful experiment in Rome, these people were sent all over Europe. They were sent to Africa in the second millennium. Think of it like poor settlements and poor countries would be marked first and Santas would be dropped off in them secretly. Everyone’s dress was the same, so people would think that it is the same Santa, who is distributing gifts and this is a great saint.

But by the end of the second century, this game went on the verge of ending. A large part of Europe America Australia Africa had been under the Church. There was Islam in Arabia, due to the deep roots of Sanatan in India, their pulse was not melting here. However, the mention of the atrocities committed on Hindus to impose Christianity by the priest Francis Xavier, who had come with the Jesuit missionary in Goa, is heart-wrenching.

The dark period of atrocities on Hindus in Goa is considered to be from 1560 to 1812. With this, gradually the work of “Santa Claus” also slowed down. Because the countries of Europe started fighting for mutual state and power. Or in the countries where they were colonized, the local people were sounding the trumpet of revolution against them. The First World War was going on that Santa Claus was then brought to the market. The image of Santa was used to sell White Roc Beverages mineral water in 1915. After this, the same company used the image of Santa for its Ginger Bell advertisement in 1923. But by the 1930s, an artist named Hayden Sandblom appeared as Santa in a Coca-Cola ad dressed in red and white and appeared as Santa for 35 years, until about 1965. Meaning Santa, who sold Christianity earlier, was now selling Coca-Cola.

Author Jeremy-Seal in his book Nicholas the-Epic-Journey from-Saint-to-Santa-Claus describes how the image of Santa Claus was used for business in the 19th century. Somewhere Santa was selling bells and somewhere umbrellas. These are really the things in the world from which they have emerged, Seal said in an interview. Meaning Christmas tree bells etc. All this is just inspired by 19th century business and nothing else. Which today has become a business of billions of trillions. Even in countries like India, Christmas tree bells have become a big business. It is said that shopping or other purchases worth about 5 lakh crores are done by some means which is more than the shopping of Diwali. But it is infamous Diwali! Because Diwali crackers give damage and Christmas and New Year crackers provide oxygen to the atmosphere?

However, when Santa was selling the products of well-known companies on a large scale, in the seventies and eighties, he was once again noticed by the pop of the Vatican. Thought now why not serve Christianity through them again in modern society! Immediately the name of Santa’s army was changed to a Saint Nicholas. According to the school curriculum, the story of the children was made that Santa Uncle comes to keep presents for them at night. George Melacrino’s popular song Mrs. Santa Claus in the sixties children’s book How Mrs. Santa Claus Saved Christmas, written by Phyllis Mack Ginley, made the character of Mrs. Santa Claus very popular and true, as a standard character. installed. After this, the story of Santa Claus was taught in schools in countries like India too. But in reality it was the entire army, which has been doing its work in schools, colleges and settlements in India for the last few years. A book written by the largest Christian organization is “The Plain Truth World Wide Church of God” in it it is written that whether right or wrong, common people hang around like sheep silently enter the slaughterhouse after others. This is true in India. Christian missionaries saw people here in the form of sheep and made full use of it.

Those who today understand that this is just a Santa but this is a big army. Although in the last few years, there have been many cases of theft posing as Santa in many places, in many places the shop and house robbers were none other than Santa Claus. But still the people of India are not aware of this polymorphism of the Christian organization that it is not a saint but a means, sometimes a seller of Pepsi and Coca-Cola, and sometimes a means of selling Christmas trees or bells, which has been sold to Christianity before and now Also selling.
