"And with that kind of centrality of the home it was much harder for Puritans or anyone else to object now part of the big deal surrounding Christmas involved the figure of Saint Nicholas of Santa Claus now here it's a very very long way from my IRA Turkey to New York City but that's a journey that we have to take if we want to understand why it was that Christmas ultimately conquered all of America and then conquered the entire world because part of the popularity is based on this Saint of the old Catholic Church who was the bishop of Myra it's near the modern town if the Nikkei Turkey any lived sometime in the three hundreds we don't know that much about it but one of things we know is that he was born into a wealthy family his parents died he inherited a whole bunch of money and then began giving it away and in one particular case he gave it away in a very memorable manner putting gold into three bags and then throwing those bags with gold into a window to help three girls who were destitute who were according to the story about to be forced by their father into a life of prostitution but Saint Nick Saint Nicholas the prototype for Santa Claus yeah he was put the bags of gold through the window and threw his kindness helped these girls live more satisfying more up lifting lives and his feast day was December sixth and beginning really some several hundred years after his death throughout Europe people began observing this feast day as a day particularly to honor children and to honor one another with gifts and feasting and Saint Nicholas is memory and part of what this involved was people conjuring up an image of Saint Nicholas he was usually portrayed not as anybody was fat at all jolly around or anything like that but rather gaunt person who would be dressed up in red he was a bishop in Turkey and yeah the name Santa Claus comes from the way that the Dutch would say the shortened version of Nikolaos Nikolaos would be Claus clause and so Santa Claus would be the way it say St clause center close San Santa Claus and that's how he came to be known when we return and what about this Kris kringle name of this is fascinating the town already will be right back the new year is here twenty twenty and while it may be a new year the message will never change the old pants are bringing a message of hope and salvation to all who will listen back on the road full time after taking some important and much needed family time Steve Tim done and Daniel are back and stronger than ever before come Sunday morning has risen up the charts to the number ten.

"About where did the red and white in Santa Clara clauses? Wardrobe come from. I never would have guessed this. So the Santa Santa's outfit one through a variety of changes. When he first appeared. I believe was eighteen twenty eighteen twenty one. That's why we saw first hearing about him. And I he's dressed all in for as one of the popular poems said. The Sultan later on in the eighteen sixties the civil war hits and a an abolitionist named Thomas nast. Who is also a very talented artist made a picture on the cover of Harper's weekly that shape featured Saint Nick looking very much like what we would call Santa Claus dressed in red white and blue of the of the American flag passing out, you know, provision and goods and things to union soldiers to continue the fight against slavery. So that's the first time those two colors. Appear with Santa Claus and they appear with blue. And then later on she he's still retain something like a red white and blue or sometimes it's red white and green. But that's that's where it where it originally comes from. Lab. It's fascinating to me. Were you surprised when you Doug? This information up. Yeah. I mean, I was mostly surprised because I didn't think that there would be an answer for why it it turned out to be red and white now. Yeah. And and actually there's an important part of the story. I should add that that Santa Claus did continue to go through a variety of different colors, but the red and white always was there sometimes in the background sometimes in the forefront in the nineteen thirties when. Santa Claus got adopted as the spoke sell for Coca Cola that they'd been advertising and red and white for a while. So it kind of solidified the red and white because then they they advertise that you know, all all over the place Santa Claus drinking soda. All right. Yeah. That's I mean, it was essentially, you know, an advertising campaign. When you have wonderful little stations in this particular section for those of you who already have a copy of this book. Hold it up to the microphone. So you can see yourself. You know, we've been doing this show for over thirty some years now, Tom so some folks out there actually been doing their homework at night and could see some of this stuff through our microphone, and they slip. These are just just adorable tat way with them in their mushrooms, especially you know. You know, we haven't talked. We talked a little bit about mushrooms before. But are there mushrooms hidden in Christian art? I don't believe. So there doesn't actually seem to be any hardcore evidence to support it. And so usually when when when somebody says like somebody like me says there's no hardcore evidence to support the claim your usually met with. We'll look at this image. Look at this image, look at this image and some of them like those Christmas cards that you're referring to or not even Christmas cards excuse me, new year cards, and then later Christmas new year cards, some of them certainly have mushrooms on them. But when people talk about mushrooms in art, they're usually talking about the idea of hidden, mushrooms gain, Christian art, and that's you know, that's a different area of a larger overall. Somewhat very much. I should say discredited hypothesis I ushered in by a very brilliant. But in this case incorrect individual named John Marco, allegro and. The thing is that with every picture that people put forth that they think is a mushroom there. There's actually a naturalistic interpretation that is is detectable. If you study things like medieval art, if you don't just look at it and say, oh that looks like a mushroom therefore it is a mushroom. But you challenge yourself to discover what is actually going on in this picture every single time. It turns out to not be a mushroom and sell piling up. You know, all these different pictures as as people who support the theory tend to do doesn't really count at all because they all have similar problems. And it's usually that the person looking at it isn't really, you know, as as careful well-versed. Yeah. And careful is. Yes. Thank you careful with that's one of the assessment. No sorry. What's that's one of? Very positive things about your research. Do you are careful you do take time to to exempt? You just don't accept things that other people put in front of you be just because it looks like that. I've had some terrible experiences in my own research with the founding fathers, especially in regards to symbols. My doctoral thesis is on on the reverse of the great seal of the United States the pyramid. But the eye in the triangle, and that sounds great. Well, it took five and a half years. To do this. And that really opened up my reading absolutely everything historical bound it. But when I've done maybe twenty shows with historic history channel, National Geographic. Of all those kind of shows. And unfortunately, when those kind of shows, you're never really given the time to answer the question correctly. So over the decades that have been done so much disinformation misinformation has been given out about prepare mid and the eye in the triangle and had they done the research. These other folks that get into the conspiracy aspects of it when they finally found out that there was not one thousand ding father, designed our great seal the ones that were accepted. None of them were a member of any secret society and in order to find that out you had to know your history. Unfortunately, people like to leap in that. So I have had a very difficult time in in regards to those people who are not patient that don't do their homework. I mean, some of the books that I we do here on the twenty first century radio earn area of eight hundred eleven hundred pages. And I read them. And. I would feel very amiss if I hadn't read your book tonight, and I had you on. And I couldn't talk to you about what I thought you were doing from that perspective. I would not like myself because I think that's. Well, it's a lie. If I'm bringing you one I should know your stuff, shouldn't I? Yes..

If felt early in the game like the eagles were suddenly going to do this again, it takes a quarterback that's been there. That's done that that has that sort of experience that just doesn't get rattled. It takes a drew Brees to be able to sort of calm the ship at that point and say, okay, how do we fix this?
