No, you are witless. The tales about St. Nicholas INCLUDE him tossing coins down people's chimneys.<quoted text>
You are such a dumb bunny. St Nicholas was a bishop in the third century who was secretly very generous to people in need. Santa is a compulation of many cultures melted into one. The santa was imagined by a newspaper journalist in the 1800's.
Again, you do believe he existed, yet you don't believe all the tales associated with him. Just as Tre said about Jesus. There was no confusion, and it's not convoluted.
