The Christmas holiday is deeply connected to the Christian faith, with the first recorded celebration of Christmas taking place in 313 CE in the Roman Empire during the reign of Emperor Constantine. While the celebration itself is linked to festivals honoring the birth of Jesus Christ, the concept of Santa Claus and gift-giving comes from another corner of Christianity and the tale of Saint Nicholas, a 4th-century Greek bishop.

The term Christmas comes from the direct combination of Christ and mass, a holy ceremony held at church to mark the birth of Christ. Pope Julius I set the date to celebrate Christmas as December 25th as there was no written record of the actual date of birth for Christ.
On the obverse field of 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Bars is an image of Santa as he delivers toys to a home. As a Christmas figure, Santa Claus may be a more secular symbol today, but he is rooted in the Greek bishop Saint Nicholas. In fact, the idea of gift-giving at Christmas came from the combination of Saint Nicholas’ festival day with Christmas in Reformation-era England. During this period, the English Church stopped celebrating Saint Nicholas’ festival day on December 6th. In the Middle Ages, children would customarily receive small gifts the evening before his festival day. When the celebration of Saint Nicholas was merged with Christmas, so too was the idea of gift-giving.
The reverse side of Silver Merry Christmas Bars includes a blank field in the center. Around this blank field, you will find a holiday greeting above with the weight, purity, and metal content.
