What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear Christmas? Is it Jesus (Yahshua) or Santa Claus?

For most people, it is always certain that these two figures pop up in their minds. However, there is no denying that Santa Claus has taken the CENTER STAGE of Christmas, especially to the children.

This should not be a surprise since Christmas has not been about Jesus Christ in the first place. A quick look at any reliable source will reveal that December 25 is not the day Jesus was born and it is a pagan festival recycled as a “Christian” holiday.

William Walsh describes in his book The Story of Santa Klaus how we came up with this popular holiday:

“We remember that the Christmas festival . . . is a gradual evolution from times that long antedated the Christian period . . . It was overlaid upon heathen festivals, and many of its observances are only adaptations of pagan to Christian ceremonial” (1970, p. 58).

In this blog post, I want us to focus our mind on the man they call Santa Claus. While he may be an exponentially popular figure during this time of year, it is very important for us to realize that he has DECEIVED us. From the moment we were taught about him as a child to the moment we thought we should have known better.

For this reason, let me share with you 10 shocking Truths about Santa Claus you probably don’t know.

I could not overemphasize the importance of reading this article to the very end. So please, READ ON.

Truth no. 1: Name of Santa Claus

The origin of the name “Santa Claus” comes from the Dutch form “San Nicolaas”. San Nicolaas stem from the name of St. Nicholas, the bishop of the city of Myra in southern Asia Minor (though there is little or enough evidence to prove his existence). He is a Catholic saint honored by the Greeks and the Latins on December 6.

At this point in time, we should ask, how was a man living in the warm and hot country of Turkey eventually got to the North Pole? The simple answer is that he was later associated with the Northern European gods Woden and Thor. This was done to “Christianize” pagan gods.

Santa Claus is known to be a carpenter. A carpenter’s most common tool is the hammer. This is similar to the weapon of the pagan god, Thor – his hammer. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

The nickname of Santa Claus is Old Nick. You might be surprised that Old Nick is a well-known British name of the devil. Make a quick google search of “Old Nick” and you will soon discover this is true.

Maybe you have noticed it already, but THE NAME SANTA CAN EASILY BE TRANSFORMED FROM “SANTA” TO “SATAN”. Don’t think this is just a coincidence. Anagrams – a word, phrase, or name formed by rearranging the letters – are a common ancient occult practice to hide the real meaning of a certain message.

How about the name Claus? It can also be rearranged to become “Lucas”. Lucas and Lucis are new-age words for Lucifer.

Truth no. 2: Santa Claus entering our house through the Chimney

10 shocking truths about Santa You Won't Believe are True.jpg
Do you know the real Santa? The truth will shock you!

If you have a sane mind and you think of a man in the middle of the night enters your house through the chimney, what do you call him? Definitely, you will call that person as a ROBBER OR A THIEF!

Yahshua or Jesus Christ has this to say:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way [THE CHIMNEY], the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. THE THIEF DOES NOT COME EXCEPT TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:1, 10).

NEVER allow Santa come in your house or better yet, your life. NEVER!

Truth no. 3: Kris Kringle

In the US, the name Kris Kringle is used to refer to Santa Claus. But do you know that the Kris Kringle is derived from the German word Christkindl? It means little Christ child.

In effect, every time we call Santa as Kris Kringle, we are calling him JESUS CHRIST! Can you imagine giving the glory and honor of Jesus Christ to Santa Claus?! This is certainly what Satan wants, to steal the glory of God and let people worship him.

Truth no. 4: White beard and hair

Santa is commonly pictured as someone with white hair and beard. Who would have inspired people to make Santa appear like this but no other than Satan himself? For Satan knows how the glorified Jesus looks like. Jesus is pictured in Revelation 1:13-14 as someone who has white hair and beard.

“And in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His HEAD AND HAIR WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL, AS WHITE AS SNOW, and His eyes like a flame of fire.” Compare with Daniel 7:9.

Again, Satan wants to become like God and would like to do everything to make himself look like Jesus Christ.

Truth no. 5: Red Suit

Santa is again pictured in a red suit. Red is the color of blood. Jesus is known to be “clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13). By this time, you should now have the FEELING someone really wants to be someone else.

Truth no. 6: Burned in the furnace

We know that Santa enters homes through the chimney. Upon entering, his feet would land on the furnace. Read Revelation 1:15:

His [Jesus Christ] feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.

Over and over again, we see how Satan has become the GREATEST IMPOSTOR to the point he has deceived the WHOLE world (Revelation 12:9). This must not surprise us because from the beginning Satan has always said:

“‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High’” Isaiah 14:13-14). Notice the number of “I”s; this is how self-centered Satan is.

Truth no. 7: Santa the Carpenter

We read the scripture that Jesus is a carpenter (Mark 6:3). Again, Satan is so quick to copy any attribute of Jesus Christ. We know that Santa Claus is also told to be a carpenter.

Truth no. 8: Satan dwelling in the North Pole

It is quite shocking to know that the direction toward the north points to the Throne of God. Satan knows this so he inspired people to also think he lives in the NORTH pole!

I already mentioned Isaiah 14:13 where it says, “I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north”. The same thought can also be read in Psalm 48:1-2 and Ezekiel 8:14.

Truth no. 9: Elves, Santa’s helpers

I am really fascinated about how Santa Claus’ OBVIOUS satanic attributes are manifested and yet people don’t stop and question it. Again, we know that the ministers of Santa Claus are elves. We read the meaning of elf:

“A wandering spirit; a fairy; a hobgoblin; an imaginary being which our rude ancestors supposed to inhabit unfrequented places, and in various ways to affect mankind” (Merriam Dictionary).

We read in the scripture that Satan’s minions are called demons – angels who have rebelled against God.

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).

Truth no. 10: Children lined up to sit on Santa’s lap

Jesus Christ is pictured as someone who loves Children:

“And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Permit the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:13-14).

But now, we see many children are lining up and waiting for their turn to be put on Santa’s lap. One of Satan’s ultimate goal is to destroy potential children of God. He knows that the most innocent and vulnerable are the children because of their young age. He wants to exploit this and use it to his advantage.


Final words

We must not be surprised how Satan has become the greatest impostor of all time. For it is written:

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works” (II Corinthians 11:13-15).

LET US OPEN OUR EYES to these TRUTHS! The persona of Santa Claus is among the most diabolic deceptions that are propagated every year in this pagan holiday! Let these words fall not on deaf ears, but rather do what you are able to do as a Christian.

Fight Satan’s deceptive schemes! Make a stand. Stop being deceived. Say no to anything that has something to do with Satan! SAY NO TO SANTA CLAUS!

  3. Very good article on the deception surrounding Santa or Satan Clause as I have come to call him. I remember how shocked I was a few years ago when I opened my dictionary and learned about deception number 3. I am not sure which shocked me more, the fact that Santa Clause had so fully mimicked Christ that he had taken on his name or the fact that the friendly toy builders we had been taught to love were in the past thought to steal or exchange children. And that if someone thought that their child was a changeling the test could involve a superstitious but not physically harmful ritual, or it could involve outright child abuse in the form of beatings and burning.

    Unfortunately many of us have little idea what we are celebrating when we partake of Christmas. I know that I did not. But I am thankful that God cared enough to teach me what it really was. Thank you for this article because it reminds me just how grateful I am that God led me out of this great deception.


  4. In fact it is true things I have never noticed. Actually many people specially in Africa deep in the village are ignorant about this, but How do we help our people do understand this since not all access this blog?


  5. I would agree that Santa Clause is derived from the dutch San Nicolaas only because if english speaking people say San Nicolaas it would phonetically sound like Santa Clause. But I wouldn’t go as far as saying Santa is equivalent to Satan. Santa is Spanish for “saint”or “holy” as in Santa María de la Inmaculada Concepción i.e.(Holy Mary of the Immaculate Conception). I believe our Latin christian brothers and sisters would be deeply offended at such a comparison.


      • Quite right Joshua. I understand Santa refers to the female canonized or holy person but my point was mainly that “Santa” in Santa Clause is only a phonetic derivitave and thus is only coincidentally an anagram of satan. Not a true anagram either as one is Spanish and the other English


      • Hi Mark!

        I would say you have a point there. However, do you know why Santa Claus is called Santa if he is not a female saint? I would say that Santa here has a different meaning.



      • Quite right Joshua. I understand Santa refers to the female canonized or holy person but my point was mainly that “Santa” in Santa Clause is only a phonetic derivitave and thus is only coincidentally an anagram of satan. Not a true anagram either as one is Spanish and the other English. Actually I stand corrected… Santa in Clause and satan are both English words so they are true anagrams of each other, but I still believe that it is a coincidence.


  6. Most Christians I have known only scoff when told that Santa (Satan) and his elves (demons) are anti-Christ characters of make-believe (deception)…designed to mock ‘self-denial’ and promote self-indulgence. Christmas is an adult, lustful pagan ‘orgy’ hiding behind the curtain of innocent children joyously receiving material gifts. Even with abundant evidence against celebrating Christmas, these Christians believe themselves to be followers of Christ Jesus, and there is no (harm) sin-judgment against practicing these celebrations. Their Pastors say Christmas is a permanent part of the ‘church’, and they are involved in finding ways to “Keep Christ in Christmas”. Pastors became the #1 ‘promoters’ of this ‘worldly’ celebration, sugar-coating it with so-called ‘religious’ significance as ‘preaching salvation’….Preachers had never done this before 1700’s in Amer….today, they continue to JUSTIFY celebrating Christmas as NOT A SIN.. Therefore, I found myself having to reject their Christmas Christianity, so they rejected me and cast me out. I believe that if the Pastors had rejected celebrating Christmas–Christians would have learned true Righteousness. BUT as it is, many more grievous sins are ABOUNDING, 50+ million abortions, drug addictions, alcoholism, murders, American greed, avarice, gluttony, fornication, adultery–and every sinful PLEASURE OF THE FLESH BEING FULFILLED!! It goes far beyond just celebrating Christmas–the wickedness multiplies! What a JUDGMENT all these Christmas Christian Pastors have awaiting them! It’s just mind-blowing to see the deception that has overtaken the ministry. WOE, WOE, WOE!


    • Hi, Susan!

      Thanks for your reply.

      I know it is kind of difficult to be different especially when you reject what most people believe as correct.

      In this time and age, we must hold on the truth no matter who stands with us. At the end, what’s important is that we are standing with God.



  7. you left that he takes on three attributes of Christ omnipoent, omnipresent and omniscient. In doing he puts himself on the sane spiritual leval as our Christ and this carries over, and I bei
    live is even worse, is allowing the goddes of lust to overshadow the resurrection. As long as there is pegan idols and gods incorporated in our whorship we will be a weak church.
    May God bless your endevors


  8. I strongly agree !! The amount of times in this article I read “Satan” as “Santa” and vice versa is ridiculous!

    So crazy ! Those who go to church can be even more deceived than those living in the world 🤦🏽‍♀️ — ““Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭21‬:‭31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    You have to become the church! — but instead many just GO (rather than become) on Sunday — which is a day dedicated to worshiping the Sun God! God himself observed the Sabbath, on the SEVENTH DAY ! A Saturday!!! …SMH.. Santa is craftyyy🙄
