The Greek Santa Claus is Agios Vasilis (Αγιος Βασίλης) and he brings presents on New Year’s Eve. Agios Vasilis is St. Basil in English, and he comes from Caesarea in Asia Minor. He died on January 1st, 379 AD, and the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates his memory on January 1st. This is why in Greece Agios Vasilis brings presents on New Year’s Eve and not on Christmas, as it happens elsewhere in the world.

“ ...Seek to distinguish yourself from others only in your generosity. Be like gods to the poor, imitating God’s mercy. Humanity has nothing so much in common with God as the ability to do good.” – St. Gregory the Theologian (also known as Gregory of Nazianzus) ~ On Love of the Poor --------------------------------------------------- (Fresco from Decani Monastery, 14th century, Kosovo, Serbia)
