The real Santa Claus, St Nicholas of Myra, who lived from 270-346AD has finally shown his true face with 21st century technology.

St. Nicholas is long considered the "first" Santa Claus based on tales of his generosity, charity and goodwell towards all men....but surprisingly, he doesn't look anything like what we've made him out to bed.

Scientists using detailed measurements of his skull along with technology that creates digital clay allowed them to recreate St Nick's face to give us a gander at what the jolly old fellow looks like.....well considering he came from Turkey he doesn't look anything like the rosy cheeked, jolly fat man that we all consider "Santa Claus"

Check out the full story here.

So what did you get for Christmas?
