Message for kids; Santa and Jesus were white, so stop complaining
Christ (Jesus) was Hebrew and in the day of His existence, he was what we would call 'Middle eastern' so... he was not white.
Seems simple enough.
Santa Claus is based on St. Nicholas who came from a region that is now in Turkey but was, at the time, mainly Greek. Was he white? Not exactly but...
neither am I.
Santa can be portrayed as anyone sees fit but to be accurate, he was likely of European decent.
Christ can be portrayed as anyone sees fit but to be accurate, he was likely of a middle eastern line most seen still today.
Should we freak if either comes out as White? Black? Purple?
Only if we are based on the shallowest of understandings of reality.
