Our Santa Claus has more in common with shamanistic characters of legend than the church's pious St. Nicholas. Your question today:
What is one similarity between Santa and the night visitors of our older traditions? (Bonus Question: What was Nicholas' position in the church?)
Are you playing along for a gift card? See the notes below for details on my 25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia!
Remember, my 25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia is an actual contest. If you want to participate, all you have to do is send me your answer to each question I've posted (and for which I have not yet posted the answer). I'll start posting answers on Wednesday, but will likely only go through the first week of trivia. So you still have time to go back through the posted questions and rack up some points.
Points? Yes! The three folks who rack up the most points in my trivia game will receive a gift card!
If you want to participate, simply message me your answers. Don't post in the comments unless you don't mind sharing your work. (Just DM me on Twitter, private message me on FB, or use the contact info on this blog to email me).
