Question and answer
Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birthday. Why at Christmas, does the whole world talk about Santa Claus, and not Jesus himself?
Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birthday. At Christmas, the whole world talk about Santa Claus, as a symbol of love and a season of giving as depicted by the Magus(three wise men) who journeyed far to present the Messiah with a gift. However it is easy for people to get carried away with these things while forgetting the reason for the season, which is Jesus.

Santa Claus (Saint Nicholas, patron saint of children) is thought of mainly as the jolly man in red who brings toys to good girls and boys on Christmas Eve. However, Christmas is for celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. It is indeed important to recollect the selfless act of Jesus Christ but because of the impact of Santa's image especially to the children, Christmas advertisements use Santa to portray gift giving and the joy of Christmas.

The Dutch are credited for the Santa Claus tradition as they are the ones who brought it to New York along with the giving of gifts on December 6th. December 6th was Saint Nicholas (Sinterklaas) day but overtime it changed. The current depiction of Santa Claus is based on paintings by cartoonist Thomas Nast.
Coca-Cola company too had a role in the current view of Santa Claus having made advertisements in 1931 where Santa Claus is painted. Santa Claus became a symbol of giving of gifts on the night before Christmas. Overtime the tradition spread to most parts of Europe and is now worldwide. This revolutionised the idea of Christmas as people focused more on the idea of giving of gifts as compared to remembering the birth of Christ. Hence more of focus on Santa Claus.
