Even a child can see the similarities between
Santa Claus and the pagan German god – “Thor”.   

THE PAGAN GOD – “THOR”
IS IDENTIFIED AS – ‘SANTA CLAUS’ 

“It should be noted though, that the figure of
Santa Claus is really a non-Christian one
and is based on the Germanic god Thor
who rode on a chariot drawn by goats named
Cracker and Gnasher.”
– St. Nicholas’ Day; By Shonnie Scarola

Thor was the god of the peasants
and the common people. He was represented
as an eld­erly man, jovial and friendly,
of heavy build, with a long white beard.
His element was the fire, his color red.
The rumble and roar of thunder were said
to be caused by the rolling of his chariot,
for he alone among the gods never rode on
horse­back but drove in a chariot drawn by
two white goats called Cracker and Gnasher.
He was said to live in the ‘North­land’
where he had his palace among icebergs.
The fireplace in every home was especially
sa­cred to him, and he was said to come down
through the chimney 
into his element, the fire.”
– -Francis X. Weiser,
Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs
(New York: Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc., 1958) 

Thor was fighting the giants of ice and snow,
and thus became the Yule-god. He was said to live
in the “Northland” where he had his palace among
icebergs. By our pagan forefathers he was considered
as the cheerful and friendly god, never harming
the humans but rather helping and protecting them.
The fireplace in every home was especially sacred
to him, and he was said to come down through the
chimney into his element, the fire.”
-(Guerber, H.A. Myths of Northern Lands.
New York: American Book Company, 1895, p. 61)

The unusual and common characteristics

“Swedish children wait eagerly for
a gnome whose sleigh is drawn by
the goats of the thunder god Thor.

With his red suit and cap, and a bulging
sack on his back, he looks much like the
American Santa Claus.”
-(Barth, Edna.
Holly, Reindeer, and Colored Lights,
The Story of the Christmas Symbols.
New York: Clarion Books, 1971, p. 49) 

Thor was probably history’s most celebrated
and worshipped pagan god. His widespread
influence is particularly obvious in the
fifth day of the week, which is named after him
– Thursday (a.k.a. Thor’s Day).

“Behind the name Santa Claus actually stands
the figure of the pagan Germanic god Thor.
Here, then, is the true origin of our “Santa Claus.”
-(Weiser, Francis X.
Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs.
New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc.,
1952, p. 113)

 “It was Thor who in the last days of heathenism
was regarded as the chief antagonist of Christ.”
– (Davidson, H.R. Ellis. Scandinavian Mythology.
New York: Peter Bedrick Books, 1982, p. 133) 

In case you are not aware, an “antagonist”
is an enemy, adversary or replacement. 

The bizarre and mutual attributes of Thor and
Santa are no accident.

Santa’s Trademark is
“Ho – Ho – Ho”  !!!
Santa’s trademark “Ho! Ho! Ho!”.
Most people have no idea where this came from,
and more important whom it came from. . .

“In these plays, the devil’s common entry line,
known as the “devil’s bluster,” was “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
(Siefker, Phyllis.
Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men:
The Origins and Evolution of Saint Nicholas.
Jefferson: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1997, p. 69)

“Ho, ho, ho! the devil, the devil!
A-comes, a-comes, a-comes upon me…”
