Father Christmas Is Dead and Buried in Kilkenny

Rudolph, I can explain everything!

WTF, Santa is dead? Experts are claiming the body (that’s right, body) of St Nicholas is buried at Jerpoint Abbey in County Kilkenny. Geez, so who the hell is living at the North pole then? Evidently the whole Father Christmas thingy was inspired by St Nicholas of Myra, who was one very generous dude who lived in Turkey over 800 hundred years ago (So is that why we have Turkey for Chrissy? ). St Nick built his reputation around leaving anonymous gifts for the poor, thus his metamorphous to Father Christmas (who Coca Cola metamorphosed into Santa). Confusion over his where abouts after his death have led historians to believe his remains were buried in Turkey, Italy and now Ireland. So if this is true, what are you going to tell your little snowflakes now?

    a ghost, that’s why he can fly around the world so fast! he just metaphysically transports himself.

  2. St. Nicholas is dead. Santa lives on.

    We tell them he’s ‘very much alive’ and will be coming on Christmas Eve. We don’t want the boys having post traumatic stress disorder over a dead Santa scenario now do we?

  4. Woah. Dan Brown should center his next novel around this. Dr. Robert Langdon searching for the tomb of St. Nick? Awesome.

    Happy holidays!

  5. Very informative article. I’m learning more about playing the game of golf from your site, then I’ve ever did from even my own golf teacher. Hope it’s ok that I share this post on Facebook?
