Archaeologists claim to have found the tomb of Santa Claus in Turkey
#1
AKA St Nicholas. So says the Daily Telegraph:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/...ta-clauss/

But of course, nothing is ever quite that simple:
Previously, the remains were believed to have then been smuggled to the Italian city of Bari by merchants in the year 1087. Christians visit the site of what was thought to be his final resting place in Bari's Basilica di San Nicola. However, Turkish experts are now claiming the wrong bones were removed and those taken abroad belong to another, local priest, rather than the legendary bishop.

...the older vernacular as Sinterklaas, is really a nature spirit, an exemplification of the idea of nature, it expresses, as many ideas of nature spirits do, archetypically, many attributes found in nature,  a combination or collection of many attributes found in the idea of the animal kingdom. the reindeer of Santa Claus is not so much the reindeer pulling a sleigh, but the association to that particular animal totem. And also the recognition that the hoof prints left in the snow, in many occasions, do not actually belong to the reindeer, but to this entity itself. For it has some of the attributes of the reindeer including the idea of the hoof, when it is taking physical form.

Over time, we distorted the history of Sinterklass including the red suit is actually the idea of what might be called, "cloak of night." But in this sense, the idea of red is that it represents the fundamental lifeblood of the being, and the idea of the vibration of grounded reality and what might be called the root chakra of your energy system. Thus, it is a representation of something very earthly and fundamental, being rooted into nature, and the representation of the manifestation of gifts and abundance that are all around you in nature.

The RCath Churs, in particular, decided to create an 'apostle' to cash in on the distortion so, no, St. Nicholas might be buried there, but he ain't no Santa Claus.

There are lots of theories about Santa Claus, aren't there?

That's a very pre-post-modern outlook.

It seems to be open season on Santa Claus. Part of a pelvis, a relic of St Nicholas formerly preserved in France, has been carbon dated at Oxford. The result is consistent with the date of St Nicholas's death, which the BBC writes as "about 343AD". They're now keen to test whether this bit of bone matches the main cache of relics in Italy. Though given the marketability of relics in medieval times, and the tendency of the pious to chop them up at will, I'm not sure that would prove much:
