Charles W. Jones, a St. Nicholas historian, there
were over two thousand churches dedicated to St.
Nicholas in France, Germany and the Low Countries
before the year 1500.

showed up in the Netherlands in the 1600's. Dutch
children would put their shoes by the fireplace for
"Sinter Klaas" to fill them with gifts and treats on
Christmas morning. Like the American Santa Claus of
today, Sinter Klaas, according to the legend, would
enter the children's home by sliding down the

years later, Washington Irving published a satire of
the Dutch founding of New York. This satire,
published by Frederick Ungar Publishing Co. in New
York, was entitled "A Knickerbocker History of New
York." This satire is credited by many as creating
our modern day Santa Claus. The satire states that a
sage named Oloffe dreamed "And
lo, the good St. Nicholas came riding over the tops
of the trees, in that self-same wagon wherein he
brings his yearly presents to the children. . . And
when St. Nicholas had smoked his pipe, he twisted it
in his hatband, and laying his finger beside his
nose, gave the astonished Van Kortlandt a very
significant look; then, mounting his wagon, he
returned over the treetops and disappeared.
(The wagon has since been transformed to a sleigh
pulled by flying reindeer.)
In 1822 a theology professor named Clement Clarke
Moore wrote a poem for his children entitled "A
Visit from St. Nicholas." Moore had no intention of
publishing the poem, but a friend took the matter
out of his hands. The poem became immensely popular.
It was eventually re-titled "Twas the Night Before
The problem with the St. Nicholas legend is that
there is no historical evidence that St. Nicholas
even existed. For this reason, in 1969, Pope Paul VI
removed the Feast of St. Nicholas from the Roman
For years I had heard the theory that "Santa" was
merely a perversion of the name Satan. But I thought
that was just a belief of religious fanatics. Still,
there was a niggling thought in the back of my mind
that for many families throughout the world, Santa
appeared to have taken the place of Jesus during the
I personally had never told my children that Santa
was real. Instead, I had wrapped their presents and
left the name tags unsigned. But after my boys were
grown, and the idea that Santa and Satan might be
one and the same, I addressed whether demonic
spirits were linked to the Santa ornaments hanging
on my Christmas tree. I was not surprised to find
that there were. I bound the spirits to the
ornaments in Jesus' name, then put them into an
opague bag and disposed of them.
Still, fearing that the world at large would view me
as some sort of kook if I spoke out against Santa, I
procrastinated about creating a Santa page for this
website. An experience in working with a victim of
severe demonic harassment wiped out that fear.
This lady had three children through whose mouths
demonic spirits would often speak, giving the names
of demons who were harassing the family.
Included among the children was a toddler who had
not yet learned to talk beyond a few words such as
Mommy and Daddy. Now the toddler was speaking in
entire sentences in a gutteral voice, using words
that are not appropriate to use in this site.
Despite numerous cast aways on their behalf, the
children continued to be tormented. This woman, who
had read my e-book What Demonic Sprits Don't Want
You to Know, knew how to do cast aways on her own
through God in Jesus' name. Yet it never occurred to
her or to me to address Santa Claus.
With the Christmas season fast approaching, Janice
(not her real name) wrote to me asking a question
about how my family celebrates Christmas. In my
reply, I mentioned that I had disposed of all the
Santa ornaments we used to hang on our tree. I
explained that I had discovered there were spirits
linked to everything I once owned that pertained to
Santa, and that Santa appears to be a perversion of
the name Satan.
The following day, I heard from Janice. She was
ecstatic. She had disposed of all her Santa
paraphernalia and done cast aways of the demons
attached. But that wasn't the reason for her joy.
Not really expecting to see any great results, after
ridding her home of Santa items, Janice had decided
to address whether or not "Santa" was harassing her
children. When she addressed it, the
manifestation as the Santa demon left her children
was gigantic. She wrote to me to say that for the
first time in years her children had slept through
the night. Demons were no longer speaking through
their mouths, and the children were no longer being
harassed in the ways they had previously been
Based on what Janice had told me, and armed with the
knowledge that Satan has many names (and harasses
his victims through each of them) I decided to
address whether or not any of my or my husband's
heath issues were linked in any way to Satan under
the name of Santa. For each and every health issue I
addressed, there was a large manifestation as Santa
was cast away in Jesus' name.
Encouraged by this, I addressed whether or not Satan
(under the name of Santa) was affecting our finances
in any way. Once again, there was a large
manifestation as Santa was cast away in Jesus' name.
Given that typos have appeared in some of my books,
despite the fact that they were not there when the
books were published, and entire paragraphs
have disappeared, I addressed whether or not Satan
under the guise of Santa was responsible. I had
previously addressed whether Satan had caused the
typos and/or deleted the paragraphs, but had had no
manifestations. When I addressed Satan under the
name of Santa, the manifestation was gigantic!
(Demonic spirits often hide under names we would
never suspect. This was a prime example.)
It is interesting to me that Santa Claus as we know
him is a cheerful old man with a twinkle in his eye
and a jolly laugh that causes his stomach to quake
like a bowlful of jelly. That sounds like the
opposite of how I imagine Satan. (If you're familiar
with the occult, you know that in the occult things
are often done backwards.)
It's a commonly known fact that Santa is an elf, the
same as the Christmas elves who, according to the
story parents tell their children, make the toys to
be delivered to children around the world on
Christmas morning. What is wrong with this image?
Elves are magical creatures! Magical creatures are
demons! Even in the countries where tales of elves
originated, the elves were often recognized as
