Halloween, Christmas, Coachella... you name it all share the strait- the battle of costumes. Like many of the celebrations that you know, Halloween is also a proliferation from a digressed cultural intent. And like Santa Claus where children are lullabied into the false belief of this pot-bellied dude who will descend from the chimney in his reindeer-drawn sleigh with gifts if they are good, Halloween is also another culturally woven practice. For unbeknownst to them and contrary to the origin of the Christian belief, Santa Claus have its origin from the pagan god, Odin. The children sure will be baffled to know that much like the Norse God, Odin, Santa Claus is also shown in a very similar fashion with a white beard and flowing coat.
