A Brief History of Santa

A Brief History of Santa

How did Santa become Santa? Listen to the 12 Days of Hello Internet: 每年 12 月 24 日,世界各地的孩子们都会拿出牛奶和饼干, 巴望着能够吸引一位散发着魔力的胖爷爷进屋,并在他钻进隔壁邻居的屋子之前留下礼物。 这一奇怪的习俗是怎么诞生的呢? 也许你最该怪罪的是北欧。那儿的冬天又冷又黑令人忧郁, 而最冷最黑令人伤心欲绝的是 12 月 21 日或 22 日的冬至, 太阳仅仅升起个把小时,散发出些微微弱的光线,而有些地方根本就处于极夜。 这些被夺走了阳光的人们发明了魔法使来拜访他们,用礼物和祝福让他们舒心。 这些魔法使包括精灵、天神、山羊等等,其中两位对于现代的故事有着特别的影响。 第一位是荷兰的圣尼克(St Nick)。圣尼克很瘦削,甚至带点严厉, 但是依旧会在 12 月初给孩子们带去礼物。他一身红白搭配, 手握法杖,活像一位主教。他的坐骑是一匹叫作亚美利哥的马,而荷兰的孩子们则会为它留下胡萝卜。 圣尼克在荷兰语中叫做 Sinterklaas。 第二位是英格兰的圣诞爸爸(Father Christmas)。圣诞爸爸是个大个子, 穿着滑稽的异教绿衣,头顶神圣的花冠。 传统上,他跟孩子和礼物并不太搭界,跟美食、美酒和庆典倒更有关系。 最知名的恐怕是这一点:他是恐吓守财奴的圣诞三幽灵之一。 欧洲开始殖民后,圣尼克、圣诞爸爸和其他魔法使逐渐融合起来。 这解释了为什么美国版本有这许多名字。圣诞老人(Santa Claus)是美国化的 Sinterklaas, 但是他也被叫作圣尼克、圣诞爸爸以及来自德国的叫法 Kris Kringle。 旧时不同的魔法使随着时间的推移在新世界中变成了同一位, 正如其它古老的传说一样。 比如,出现于 1823 年的纽约的诗歌“圣诞前夜” 奠定了圣诞老人从屋顶着陆和用玩具填满袜子的传统。 然而这位圣诞老人是一位精灵,正如其他来自北欧的圣诞老人一样。他个子很小, 驾着小巧的驯鹿雪橇——这很讲得通, 毕竟他的工作包括了钻进烟囱。 另外,Santa 并未出现在诗中。诗的原名叫做“圣尼克的来访”。 到了 19 世纪,胖胖的不老的圣诞老人逐渐变成了美国作家中的标准。 他在美国不但获得了精灵的力量还讨到了老婆。 到了大概 20 世纪,圣诞老人成为了现在的标志性形象。值得一提的是, 与通常认为的情况相反,可口可乐并未将圣诞老人包装成公司的标志色,… Read Article →
