Hello Lauren

There are many legends about who Santa Claus was and is.  Mrs. Claus has been given a few different names depending on what history or movie you refer to. 

It is believed that the first Santa Claus was Saint Nicholas.  Saint Nicholas was a monk and therefore did not marry.

The Santa Claus that we know lives in the North Pole.  According to some North American sources, his original name was Kris Kringle before he changed his name to Santa Claus.  Kris Kringle was a toymaker who married Jessica. 

Other names found for Mrs Claus are Mary Christmas, Gertrude, and Carol.

This may be a good question to ask Santa when you write to him this year.

  5. I have never seen Santa either Parinaz, but if we truly believe in him and the magic of Christmas, we can see him with our hearts and our imaginations. Maybe he likes it better that way and has special powers to cloak himself from human sight so we can keep on believing. Sorry, I don't have an answer to this one.
