Ripley's Believe It or Not by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for December 25, 2013
It would cost more than $25,000 to buy all the gifts in The 12 Days of Christmas at today's prices. Christmas was not an official holiday in America until 1870! The bones of St. Nicholas- Santa Claus- are kept in Bari, Italy, where they were taken in the 11th century from Turkey.
