The subject of this study is to examine the identity of the mythological and folkloric personality known in the present day Christian world as "SAINT NICHOLAS",  "SANTA CLAUS", "FATHER NOEL" and many other variations. 

Saint Nicholas is defined as "Santa Claus, an imaginary figure said to bring presents for children on Christmas. He is conventionally pictured as a jolly old man from the far north, with a long white beard and red garments trimmed with white fur. Also called Saint Nicholas or Saint Nick.
ORIGIN late 18th cent.: originally a U.S. usage, alteration of Dutch dialect Sante Klaas ‘St. Nicholas’"
, [Oxford American Dictionary].

The online Wikipedia also gives the following background information at link:

"Saint Nicholas
 (Greek: Άγιος Νικόλαος, Aghios ["holy"] Nicolaos ["victory of the people"]) (270–6 December 343),[3][4] also called Nikolaos of Myra inspired the popular folk-legend of Santa Claus, but was himself a historic 4th-century saint andGreek[5] Bishop of Myra (Demre, in Lycia, part of modern-day Turkey). Because of the many miracles attributed to hisintercession, he is also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker (Greek: Νικόλαος ο Θαυματουργός, Nikolaos o Thaumaturgos). He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas. His reputation evolved among the faithful, as is common for early Christian saints.[6] In 1087, his relics were furtively translated to Bari, in southeastern Italy; for this reason, he is also known as Nikolaos of Bari. His feastday is 6 December.

The historical Saint Nicholas is remembered and revered among Catholic and Orthodox Christians. He is also honored by various Anglican and Lutheran churches. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, thieves, children, and students in Greece, Belgium, France, Romania, Bulgaria, Georgia, Albania, Russia, the Republic of Macedonia, Slovakia, Serbia, and Montenegro. He is also the patron saint of Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Barranquilla, Bari, Beit Jala, Fribourg, Huguenots,Liverpool, Siggiewi, and Lorraine. He was also a patron of the Varangian Guard of the Byzantine emperors, who protected his relics in Bari."



1.   Greek Name "AGIOS NIKOLAOS":

The Greek name "Agios Nikolaos"  (Άγιος Νικόλαος), is said to be Aghios meaning "holy" and Nicolaos meaning "victory of the people". I will show below that these meanings attributed to this Greek name are not truthful.

In regard to the concept of "Saint Nicholas", the meaning attributed to this imaginary person has no relevance whatsoever.  The name "Saint Nicholas" has no conceptual relation with the so-called "holy victory of the people" concept.  Therefore, it is a concoction and distraction!  The Greeks can only call this supposedly "Greek Name" AGIOS NIKOLAOS as the "
holy victory of the people", because, by using the language alteration technique, they were able to steal and also obliterate the ancient Turanian language, civilization, culture and the people - without the Turks being aware of this sneaky activity.  The  name Saint Nicholas is a personification of a mythological concept that originated from the ancient Turanian civilization of Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples who worshipped the Sky-God, Sun-God and the Moon-God. Originally, it does not belong to "Aryan" or "Semitic" culture but rather the ancient Turanian culture.  The names associated with this imaginary person are names that have been made up using anagrammatized forms of Turkish words and phrases.  In the process, some very importants words of Turkish language and the ancient Turanian religion have been usurped.  This we can see as follows:



2.    The Greek name "AGIOS

When the Greek name "AGIOS" is rearranged letter by letter as "AI-GOS", it reveals itself as the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AY GÖZ" meaning "Moon-Eye". Thus, it refers to the Moon as an "eye" in the sky. 


3.    The Greek name "NIKOLAOS"

When the Greek name "NIKOLAOS" is rearranged letter by letter as "AL-KONIS-O", it reveals itself as the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AL GÜNEŞ O" meaning "it is the Red Sun". Thus, this artificially made up Greek name "NIKOLAOS"  is a personification of the Sun - but defined in Turkish first as "AL GÜNEŞ O" and then restructured into a "Greek" format.


Additionally, the Greek name "NIKOLAOS", rearranged as "AN-IL-OKOS", it reveals itself as the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AN yEL OGUZ" meaning "Oguz the Sky Wind". Of course, the Turkish expression "AN yEL OGUZ" is also the Turkish expression "hAN yEL OGUZ" meaning "Oguz the Wind Lord".  These definitions also bring to the surface the fact that the ancient Turanian God concept Oguz had the additional attribution of being the"Wind God". 


4.   The Greek name "AGIOS NIKOLAOS"

a)    With these decipherments, the Greek name "AGIOS NIKOLAOS" reveals itself as the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AY GÖZ , AL GÜNEŞ O" meaning "it is the Moon-Eye, Red Sun".   Thus, in this form, the old man Santa Claus is a personification of the ancient Turanian Sun-God OGUZ and Moon-God OGUZ and the Sky-God OGUZ all combined in one - but confused by being altered into a broken up format called "Greek" (i.e., "KIRIK" in Turkish meaning "broken").   The concept of the Sky-God and His eyes being the Sun and the Moon is a very ancient concept belonging to the Turanians, hence, it is personified as an "old-man".  AGIOS NIKOLAOS is rightfully personified as an old man with "red"(i.e., "AL" in Turkish) clothes because NIKOLAOS represents the "Red Sun" (i.e., AL GÜNEŞ in Turkish).


b)    Additionally, when the Greek name "AGIOS NIKOLAOS" is rearranged letter by letter as "AI-IL-KONAS-GOS-O", it again reveals itself as the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AY, yIL, GONAŞ GÖZ O" (AY, YEL, GÜNEŞ GÖZ O) meaning "it is the Moon, Wind and Sun Eye". Thus, this alternative decipherment in Turkish identifies the ancient Turanian Moon-God, Sun-God and Wind God - all being personified as "AGIOS NIKOLAOS".  In this definition, the wind worshipping Hellens (Aryan Greeks) have also included the name of "wind" in Turkish "YEL" (YIL, => EL,  IL) in the definition as well.  The "wind-god" was the Turko-Sumerian name "ENLIL", that is, Turkish "HAN YEL" or"YELHAN". As I have been saying in many of my writings, the Sun and the Moon were regarded as the two eyes of the ancient Turanian Sky-God GÖK TANRI.   The name HELLEN, rearranged as "ELLH-EN" (or "ELL-HEN"), is the altered form of the Turkish expression "YELLI HAN" meaning "Windy Lord" - thus indicating that the ancient Greeks were wind-god worshipping people (but the concept was described in Turkish). 

It must be noted that the English word "EYE" (pronounced AY) means "GÖZ" in Turkish.  But this word "EYE" is just the altered form of the Turkish word "AY" in the definition "AY GÖZ" meaning "the Moon Eye".  Thus, this Turkish word "AY"(implying "MOON EYE") and the concept it represents has also been usurped into the so-called "English" language. 


Even the name ENGLISH, rearranged as "HEN-ILGS" is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "HEN-YELCi"meaning "the Lord Wind believer".   Curiously, the Greek name for  "ENGLISH" is given as "AGGLIKOS" [Divry's Modern English-Greek and Greek-English Desk Dictionary, 1988, p. 394], where the letters GG are the two Greek letters "gama" (as in the Greek word "Άγιος" - which is transliterated into Latin as G (gama) but read as letter "Y", [see Divry's Dictionary, p. 10].  The Latin letter "Y" actually resembles the Greek letter "gama" - thus, this Greek letter has a double identity. This duplicity makes the Greek word for English "AGGLIKOS" as "AYYELKOS"  - which is a composite word made up from Turkish words AY, YEL andGÖZ.   Thus, it is also an anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "AY YEL GÖZ" meaning "Moon-Wind Eye". This explains the true identity  of the name "English" being related to the Moon and Wind.   This also explains the English phrase "I AM" (AY AM) which is from Turkish "AY'AM" (AY'IM) meaning "I am Moon" (i.e., I am a moon believer).




5.    The name SANTA CLAUS:

Another common name for "AGIOS NIKOLAOS" is the name SANTA CLAUS.

a)    The name SANTA is an altered form of the word "SAINT" meaning "holy". But the name SANTA is just the altered form of the Turkish word "ISTAN" - as it appears in the name of TURKISTAN.  In ancient times, the word ISTAN was one name of the Sky-God.  ISTAN is a form of the Turkish word IŞITAN meaning "that which lights up" - which is the Sun. ISTAN is also a form of the Turkish word ISITAN meaning "that which warms up" - which again is the Sun. ISTAN is also a form of a third Turkish word "ÜST HAN" meaning "the Topmost Lord" - which again refers to the SUN (i.e., GÜN, GÜNEŞ in Turkish") and its creator Sky-God.  Lastly, ISTAN is a form of the Turkish word "IŞITEN" meaning "that who hears".  In this context, the term "ÜST HAN" meaning "the Topmost Lord" also refers to the "HEAD" of human beings and also to the head of other living beings as well.  Without the head, beings cannot live or do any of the amazing things that they do.

b)    The name "CLAUS" (KLAUS), rearranged as "AL-KUS", is the altered, restructured and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AL KÖZ" meaning "Glowing Red Fire" - which refers to the Sun. Alternatively, "AL-KUS" is from the Turkish"AL GÖZ" meaning "Red Eye" - which again refers to the Sun as I pointed out above.   Of course, it also refers to the "AL OGUZ" (AL-BA
Ş-OGUZ) Turanians as the believers of the Sun, Moon and the Sky-God OGUZ.  Thus, the name "CLAUS" alsopersonifies the SUN - but in Turkish. 


The old man SANTA CLAUS is said to live in the North Pole. Why would that be?  Well, the reason is the following - but in a Turkish word:

The name of the NORTH in Turkish is "KUZEY" (KUZÖY).  But this word in Turkish, when separated as "KUZ-EY" (KUZ-ÖY) , reveals itself as the Turkish expression "GUZ ÖY" (OGUZ ÖY) meaning "House of Oguz" (Home of Oguz).  Thus this North Pole has been regarded by the ancient Turanians as the home of God Oguz.  Since the North Pole, by the use of this choice word in Turkish, is regarded as the "Home of OGUZ", then mythologically and magically, at every so-called "Christmas" time, the old man Santa starts his journey from his home at the North Pole supposedly to reach his destinations at the chimneys of every Christian house.  

At this point, I must also note that the North Pole presently is at the North pole star POLARIS, that is, "DEMIR KAZIK YILDIZI" in Turkish, around which the whole universe appears to be turning as the earth rotates around its axis continuously. This makes the Sky-God OGUZ and his home at the North-Pole "GUZ ÖY" (KUZEY) a very important and fixed godly point in space and a godly concept of the ancient Turanian universal religion of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  Because of this apparent fixed point, the universe appears to rotate around the House of Oguz, that is, the North pole star POLARIS. 



This name is said to mean Nikolaos the Wonderworker. 

Above I noted that the Greek name "NIKOLAOS" was made up from the Turkish expression "AL GÜNEŞ O" and was the personification of the Sun but in Turkish. We have the following decipherments of the Greek expression  O THAUMATURGOS.

a)    The Greek name O THAUMATURGOS, rearranged letter by letter as "O-MAH-TUR-GOSUTA", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "O MAH TUR GÖZÜTÜ meaning "that Moon is the eye of (God) TUR".  In this definition, the Moon-God of ancient Turanians is put into focus as the "Eye of the Sky-God TUR" - (i.e.,  TUR was another name of the Sky-God in Turkish).  Of course, the name TUR is also an ancestral name of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  Additionally, since the real definition is in Turkish, the concept must have belonged to the ancient Turanian civilization of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples - contrary to all intentional denials. 

In the ancient Turanian Sky-God religion, the Sun and the Moon were regarded as the eyes of the Sky-God who was named by such Turanian names as TUR, OGUZ, GÖK TANRI and others. For clarity, we must also note that the name OGUZ (OGHUZ) has the following forms in Turanian history as given in the Wikipedia link at :

"The Oghuz (variously known as Ghuzz, Guozz, Kuz, Oguz, Oğuz, Okuz, Oufoi, Ouz, Ouzoi, Torks, Turkmen, Uguz, Uğuz, and Uz ) refers to a historical nomadic confederation in Central Asia and a group of Turkish peoples who speak a southwestern branch of the Turkic language family."

b)    The Greek name O THAUMATURGOS, rearranged letter by letter as "OH-ATAM-OGUZTUR", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "O ATAM OGUZ'TUR" meaning "He is My Father OGUZ". This defines the name OGUZ as the Creator Father God. Hence, the Greek name O THAUMATURGOS is a personification of the God Oguz concept. 

Turkish words: 
 means "father" 
means "my father" 
 is "a name of Sun-God, Moon-God and the Sky-God; an ancestral name of the Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples" 
 is also another "name of Sun-God, Moon-God and the Sky-God; ancestral name of the Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples; suffix of the Turkish language meaning 'it is'". 


c)    The Greek name O THAUMATURGOS, rearranged letter by letter as "ATAM-O-GOZ-UTU-HRU", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "ATAM 'O GÖZ' UTU ERU" meaning "My Father is 'that Eye' the Sun-God Man" This again defines the name OGUZ (O GÖZ) the Sun as the Creator Father God and hence, the Greek name O THAUMATURGOS is a personification of the Sun. The Greek letter H (eta) can be transliterated as H, E and I in Latin alphabetic form. 

Turkish words: O means "he/she/it; that" 
 means "eye; a name of Sun" 
 means "a name of Sun-God in Turco-Sumerian" 
 means "man" 
 means "the man".  

d)    The Greek name O THAUMATURGOS, rearranged letter by letter as "OH-ATAM-OGUZ-TUR", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "O ADAM OGUZ  ve TUR" meaning "that man is OGUZ and TUR".  This definition refers to the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. 

e)    The Greek name O THAUMATURGOS, rearranged letter by letter as "O-ATAM-OUZ-TURGH", is the altered, restructured, Hellenized and disguised form of the Turkish expression "O ADAM OGUZ TURKI" meaning "that man is the Oguz Turk".  This definition again refers to the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. 

With this kind of godly definitions, it is no wonder that the name "NIKOLAOS  O THAUMATURGOS" is said to mean 
Nikolaos the Wonderworker.  The Sky-God, the Sun-God and the Moon-God are indeed wonderworkers.





Above I noted that the Greek name "NIKOLAOS" was made up from the Turkish expression "AL GÜNEŞ O" and was the personification of the Sun but in Turkish.

The English word FATHER is a name that supposedly emulates the Latin  name "PATER" or the word "PADRE" both meaning"father".  On the other hand the Latin name "PATER"  (and even the word "PADRE") is actually an altered form of the Turkish word "APATIR" (APATUR) meaning "he is father".  It must be noted that to obtain "PATER", the first vowel of the Turkish word APATIR has been dropped. This proves that none of these European words are authentic.  Contrary to known "knowledge" they are all made up from Turkish and thus usurped. 

The French word NOEL (Origin early 19th cent.: French Noël meaning ‘Christmas.’ [Oxford American Dictionaries]) is constracted on a the concept of Turkish word "YEL" meaning "wind". The French word NOEL, rearranged as "ON-EL", is the altered, restructured and disguised form of the Turkish expression "AN YEL" meaning "sky wind", or "hAN YEL" meaning "Lord Wind". Wind is nothing but the "air currents", that is, the movements of air masses.  


Thus the term FATHER NOEL is a personification of the "Wind-God", that is, the AIR that we breath and need to live. The Turkish word for AIR is "HAVA".  That is why the so-called "YAHOVA" (JAHOVA) is nothing but the Turkish words "AY HAVA" meaning "Moon and Air". 

Basic religious concepts of Judeo-Christianity are all based on secrecy. They do not reveal what it is that they believe in,  but, one of the things that they have always believed in, in the past, was the "Wind-God", that is, "YELHAN" or "HANYEL" in Turkish.  The other was the "Blackness", that is, "lack of light" as contrasted against the Sun and Sunlight believing ancient Turanians.  




All of these definitions in Turkish, deciphered from the "Greek" names for Saint Nicolaus, clearly show that this imaginary personSanta Claus, while attributed to Christianity, is actually sourced from the ancient Turanian civilization, and it personifies the ancient Turanian Sky-God, Sun-God and Moon-God OGUZ.  Additionally, my decipherments above show that the original concept of Saint Nicolaus (i.e., Istan Oguz) does not belong to the Greeks but rather belonged to the ancient Turanian civilization created by the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  

<>The Greeks, after usurping these ancient Turanian names and concepts, have used them to designate some religious clergy in Christian Orthodox Church establishments.  With this kind of representations, they were able to erase the ancient Turanian civilization everywhere and cover that civilization with a pseudo civilization built on the top of the ancient civilization of Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.

These decipherments also show how Turkish was the most refined, powerful and progenitor language.  This is why we are able to recover all these hidden Turkish identities in Greek words and names now.  Although the power of the Turkish language must have been known by the ancient Greeks, Semites, Romans and others, they have denied it from the world by deceptive ways.  

Santa Claus is said to reach the houses of the world where the children of Christian families live by flying through the sky in his reindeer drawn sled during the night of Christmas Eve.  Physically, the only thing that can accomplish this feat in one night is the Moon. Additionally, another thing that can enter every chimney in the night time is the moonlight - (which is actually sunlight reflected by the moon). 

During the daytime, it is the Sun that lights up the earth, and it is the sunlight that can enter all the chimneys. The sun and its sunlight brings life to all beings on earth - which is the most precious gift of them all. Similarly, the Air is also capable of entering houses through the chimneys.  Again AIR is one of the most precious life giving gifts of them all. But all of these explanations come from the Turkish language and the ancient Turanian culture.

This again verifies my decipherments showing that this imaginary person called Saint Nicolaus is the personification of the ancient Turanian Sky-God Oguz, Sun-God Oguz, Moon-God Oguz and the Wind God Oguz.  The Saint Nicolaus mythology is just like all other Greek, Roman, Semitic and other mythologies that were fabricated in different formats using Turkish words and phrases that described ancient Turanian concepts.

Santa Claus starts his journey from the North Pole (i.e.,  KUZEY ('KUZ-ÖY' or 'GUZ ÖY') in Turkish).  This Turkish termKUZEY implies that the North Pole was perceived by the ancient Turanians as the "home of God Oguz". This is why Santa'sjourney supposedly starts from the North pole. These are very important ancient Turanian facts that have been preserved in these words, yet they have been denied to the world by ancient Greeks and other Aryan/Semite groups.


Happy New Year to all,
