How tall is Santa Claus?
Santa Claus is 4 feet 3 inches. Santa just looks taller because he is surrounded by elves, giving the impression of massive height. Santa cannot be tall due to all the stooping and chimney falling he does. It would not be physically plausible if he was tall, his back and knees would give out, and without medical, Santa could be disabled.

Santa was Scott Calvin, who was played by Tim Allen in all three Santa Clause movies. Tim Allen replaced Santa Claus after accidentally startling the original Santa, causing him to fall off of his roof. Tim Allen plays Santa Claus in The Santa Clause 1,2, and 3.
Scott Calvin, or as we know him, Tim Allen, starred as Santa, inthe 1994 family film, "The Santa Clause", directed by John Pasquin.
Some people think there was a Christian Saint Nicholas and he became St. Nick, to Santa Claus. This Saint Nicholas gave presents out to people, and gave them present from his heart, such as love or joy. He still gives out presents on Christmas to this day.
Saint Nicholas lived from approximately 280 AD to 350 AD. He lived in what is modern day Turkey, and he gave gifts of gold to young unmarried girls who otherwise could not afford a dowry. The modern interpretation of Santa Clause comes from the Dutch (the pronunciation in Dutch is roughly San Nic…o Laus - which became Santa Claus). Although the real St Nick died nearly 1,700 years ago, every year during the holiday season there is still peace and love, and families get together and the children enjoy the joy of the season. And that is the real magic of Santa Claus. (MORE)
If there was a sighting, someone would report it. So no, no reported sightings. (But there are so many people dressed like him, how would you know if you saw him?)
Out delivering presents? Sure--that could be really fun! :) Out ona date? No way! He's married.
Santa Claus is the modern name for St. Nicholas, a bishop from the fourth century. He was from a devout Christian family in Patara, a village in Greece, now part of Turkey. His parents died while he was young and he took Jesus' words about "sell what you own and give the money to the poor" which in …his case, as he had a sizable inheritance, was ample to serve God assisting the needy, sick, and the suffering. He was made Bishop of Myra while still young, and buried in his Cathedral. His complete story is on the link below, along with a second link (which is part of the St. Nicholas site) for children. His feast day is 6 December. He died about the year 346 of natural causes. For more information, see the biography link below. (MORE)
His traditional base of operations is the North Pole, which is latitude 90. By an odd coincidence, the Christmas star seen by the Magi was out of the East ( Compass direction 90-00-00 and at elevation 90-00-00 That is, directly overhead! On a modern Theodolite the coordinates for the Bethlehem Chris…tmas Star would be-H ( Horizontal angle- 90-00-00 and V- Vertical 90 -00-00. It is a coincidence.also visible in the daytime ( and so it continued both day and night). (MORE)

To convince children to be good by the threat of coal instead of toys. Or for fun
"Santa Claus" The movies "Santa Clause" were a play on the word "clause", which is to do with the details of a contract (as seen in the movies). Either way, Santa Claus is a corruption of Santa Nicolaus, i.e. Saint Nicholas.
santa is called pere noel and he's not real but the children put hay and carrots in the shoes for the reindeer but did santa give presents long ago? NO CUZ HE'S NOT REAL!!!!!!!!!! DAH!!!!!!!!

The House of the Rising Sun is a Buddhist country, mainly- there are different sects such as Zen, etc. - and not a Christian Country- therefore- no Santa- San. Answer#2: There are some Christians in Japan and they would call him Santa Claus.
A fine example of a trick question! a Movie called Santa Claus was made sometime in the late fifties and perennially rerun- in the Yule season, ho ho ho! It was heavily advertised on Television, Radio and newspapers. The ads came on with a blitz- Santa Claus- everyone is waiting to see Santa Claus! …In Eastman Colorscope. No cast of characters was listed in ANY of the ads. I guess they wanted to seal in the legend as tight as possible. If they listed an actor in the lead role- that would let the cat out of the bag. It was not a cartoon. Santa Claus was one of the very few dramatic films to have an anonymous cast! so be it. (MORE)
Santa claws does not have a religion he is just a character to make kids good
No he is not real because the real santa clause died a long time a go
Santa isn't real. So no. Think about it; nobody's perfect. So there is no 'good' kids. Nobody can be perfect for 365 days, and no reindeer can fly. So, even if you are a brat all year, you'll still get gifts from your PARENTS because they are SANTA!
Well... seeing as how Santa Clause was born before the era of college, he himself did not attend! However, Santa is a huge advocate of the educational institutions and brings bigger and better gifts to all those that are enrolled!. Santa isn't real .
To make toys and deliver them, and to promote happiness and peaceand love and generosity.
Very sorry to break it to you, but Santa does not exist. The north pole is way too cold for anyone to live there, and even if you do get "presents from Santa", it's most likely your parents that put it there and say it's Santa. But hey, kids won't stop believing. :)
On vacation. My teacher met him on a cruise. She got a picture with him. Mrs. Clause was there too!
Because he cares about us and gives us presents.And when you do'nt believe in him his heart herts.he loves us just as much as god does. He is very important. Love Kelly,
Although his legends are loosely based on the historical St. Nicholas, Santa Claus does exist, as famously stated by The New York Sun newspaper, on September 21, 1897. (see related link) --- Santa Claus is a character that symbolizes happiness and joy in the Christmas season. He is a role model …for many. Without Santa, Christmas would not be as much of a joyful holiday. Any rude person who says he doesn't exist has no Christmas spirit. Existing or not, Santa is a beautiful tradition. All I can say is that Saint Nicholas was true and that is where the Santa tradition comes from. Never say Santa is not true. He isn't, but that's not what matters. Is Spongebob real? Of course not but that does not stop people from watching his show, laughing, and having a good time. Whenever someone asks me if I believe in Santa all I say is that Santa Claus is our best friend. DON'T STOP BELIEVING!! Of course He Does. Santa Claus is real in the hearts and minds of many around the world. Of course he does, It is only those who have never been children who do not believe in Santa. (MORE)
he sees you when your sleeping he knows if your good or bad so wank for goodness sake dont go to sleep
No, he doesn't. What child would want to know that? Santa is always busy busy busy with Christmas presents to celebrate the birth of jesus.
Well, Santa (St. Nick) was born a boy and grew to be a man. Once he was grown-up, he saw how many children needed to know about "a giving heart" and St. Nick decided he would show by example. Santa Claus is magical, because giving is magical.
No. He lives in a regular home. He also has a vacation home in Virginia. Sports he enjoys are golfing and running cross country.
Yes, I am very sorry to say this but Santa Claus is a fat joll old lie! It's something parents tell their kid to make Christmas more enjoyable! Sorry xx Santa Claus represents the spirit of Christmas that is very real & many people play the role to make it happen for the benefit of others.
It's in the North Pole. It's hard to find his workshop it's hidden. I believe in Santa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE IS REAL
People in England often call him Father Christmas, but some of themcall him Santa Claus as well.
Santa is mostly for kids, but some grown ups still believe in him,and like to keep him around.
I think to write a letter is saying to Santa is 'Dear Santa Claus', or to Saint Nick. Then say really happy notes to Santa Claus that Santa Claus becomes happy. Then write a closing and then your signature. -------------- If you want to send a letter to him, there's a way on the related "Santa …Claus and Christmas at the North Pole" link listed below- Get your parents' permission first , of course, and sooner or later, he will reply!! -------------- You may want to highlight your best accomplishments this year, along with your Christmas wishes. Asking about the Mrs., the Reindeer, and the Elves is nice, too. (MORE)
Well, it depends on whether he is using magic or not. If he usesmagic, he can be as strong as he wants, but without magic he is notvery strong.
The only thing I can think of is A. the Eaton Santa Claus parade- which is held in Canada on the US Thanksgiving day. I do not know if it still exists. There is definitely a parade-type attraction called the Klausjagen (Claus-Hunt) which is celebrated on December 6 in Switzerland. It honors St. Nich…olas- huge Bishop"s Mitres are worn and carried- but has nothing whatsoever to do with Christmas. I accidentally learned of this holiday when in the seventh grade. The Klausjagen is seemingly specific to Switzerland, and the Zurich area. (MORE)

The real Saint Nikolas was in the Netherlands. His wife would have called him Nikolas or in her own language possibly an endearing term like dear, husband, Nick or sweetie.
For some odd reason, Santa Claus is one character that in a very real sense acts anonymously. The movie called Santa Claus- no mention of Martians, was heavily advertised on TV well into the seventies, having been made in the Fifties or sixties a judged from the style of the ad. The ads made no ment…ion of casting, merely giving credit to the fact the film was made in ( Eastman Colorscope) this is very unusual. It was NOT a cartoon. (MORE)
They met at a raindeer festival at the North Pole. They got married a year later the built a house in the North Pole.

I am 10 years old, and today I just found out that all the magicalcreatures our parents tell us are real and we believe, are not.Yesterday I had doubts about the tooth fairy after my friend toldme her mom said it was fake and that she was the tooth fairy. IPulled a tooth and didn't tell my mom for p…roof. When I woke up itwas still there and I had no money. I asked my mom about it today,and I guess she thought it was time and that I was ready. She toldme the tooth fairy was fake. I was sad about it, but then somethinghit me. What about Santa Clause, The Easter Bunny, even my elves onthe shelf! I went back and asked her about them, and she told me,they were fake too. I was absolutely devastated. I was NOT ready tofind out that SANTA was FAKE.. But she told me, It's not about ifthey're real or not, it's about whether you believe, and the magicyou feel. (MORE)
Santa Claus is the name popularly given to the man whochildren believe delivers toys on Christmas Eve. The Santa Clause is the name of a series of moviesstarring Tim Allen. The word "clause" means part of a legalcontract, and is in the films' titles as a play on words becauseAllen's character …finds himself required to take over for the"real" Santa Claus. The movies were so popular that a lot of people now mistakenlybelieve that "Santa Clause " refers to the man himself, a bitlike Kurt Cobain's album title "Nevermind" caused people to believethe expression is a single word instead of two ("Oh, never mind!").
