Myra: Home Of Santa Claus
We always pictured Santa Claus as an old man with gray hair and blue eyes. Is it correct though? Considered that he is originally from Anatolia, from Myra specifically, so he is more likely to have a slightly tanned skin tone and brown eyes.
Myra, also known as Demre nowadays, is the ancient Lycian city where Saint Nicholas Church is located. This is the place where Santa Claus said to lived until his last days. Even though it is mostly ruins now with couple of marble columns and walls survived until this date, it is a significant landmark holding great importance for many cultures and religions.
The colors of the walls may be fading in time, but memories are always there to open a window to the past and take us to unforgettable adventures.
