Children: Santa Claus is real!
...And he's dead.
The tomb of Santa has been found in Turkey, according to ground-penetrating radar scans, which revealed an ancient temple and burial ground under the Church of St Nicholas in Demre, Antalya. The temple dates from the 4th century AD, a time when the local bishop Nicholas was earning a reputation for his generosity towards the poor. Saint Nicholas' fabled gift-giving gave rise to the legend of Sinterklaas in the Netherlands, which morphed into Santa Claus and was popularised in the US by Dutch immigrants to the colonies.
The news that Santa is dead has come as a shock to many.
