Santa Claus 

The legend of the old plump is based in San Nicolas de Bari, who was born in Turkey in the year 280, helped by black slaves instead of elves. It was said that helping the most disadvantaged.
But it was in 1624 when it was renamed Santa Claus, when Dutch immigrants arrived in New York. Among its myths, had to Sinterklaas was a saint who gave gifts to children.
The legend grew in the collective imagination, but the character we know today already emerged in the twentieth century when Coca-Cola commissioned the painter Habdon Sundblom to remodel the figure to make it more human and endearing, and also changing red color of its clothes.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

In Spain people eat 12 grapes at midnight on New Year's Eve, one with each chime.
In china people eat noodles and lettuce. Noodles are symbol for long life, because of its length, and cut or break into small pieces attracts bad luck. Lettuce leaves are used to wrap other luckily foods.
