I am afraid you have been hoodwinked. Imagine my surprise when I saw my own mother delivering presents to me on christmas morning. I had no idea see had this secret life as santa. So I can confim to you that santa is a small black haired middle aged woman, with glasses.
P.S. I too had heard about the green suit but I don't know about the skinny bit.
Definitly Green before CocaCola
not according to snoopes.com!
Is there not some Christmas character called the Grinch that is green? Or was that just invented for the Jim Carrey movie?

was invented by dr.seuss as a kids book later turned into a movie with jim curry
Thousands of years ago, I was a bishop named "Nicolas". I bought people out of slavery. I was then considered a saint, thus the name "Saint Nicolas" mens gave me.
Over years my name evolved into "Sinta Cales," which then evolved into the Santa Claus people know today.
Most people see me in red because of Coca-Cola. They dressed me in red and white to fit the company colors.
I am actually dressed in green. And to preserve the green, Christmas is primarily the colours of red and green.
North American culture of celebrating Christmas is actually events from other countries blended into one event. The French still call me Saint Nicolas.

Santa Claus is a myth based around St. Nicholas actions. St. Nicholas has been recorded by many sources (including his own diary) as giving out presents in a GREEN suit. Nothing I read will convince me otherwise. I did a college history paper on the rise and fall of the Green santa. I was Coca-Cola who first altered the Santa image to red. As it is a popular colour people began to prefer it and it stuck.

Believe me. After read thousands of pages on this and writting about 40 in verdana size 8 you get passionate about it. Maybe one day I will bore ... I mean bless you wish that essay.
santa claus nick is calling you a myth! I find it hard to believe you are a myth when you just posted a message :)

And dinos are not extinct? :)
You know, we have to check the credibilty of all members here. We cannot have just any tom dick or Nicholas posting as if they come from Lapland.
So, Santa, you'll be getting a stickymail from me (along with my usual Christmas letter). ;)
Grow up you guys!
I was told years ago that Santa Claus definitively does not exist. And we all know that the easter bunnies don't tell lies, so I believe it so ;)
