Fact of the Day: Santa's Chimney

While many children know the story of Santa going down the chimney to bring toys, however most don't know the origin. Most of the chimney stuff dates back to the tales of the actual Saint Nicolas. Saint Nicolas would throw coins through windows if they were open, if not he would throw them down the chimney. The story later evolved into something a bit more magical.

i really didn't know this. i thought the origins were from the poem "twas the night before christmas." when it says, "Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound."...
