I thought that also. From Wikipedia:
"The god Odin's role during the Yuletide period has been theorized as having influenced concepts of St. Nicholas in a variety of facets, including his long white beard and his gray horse for nightly rides (see Odin's horse Sleipnir), which was traded for reindeer in North America.[18] Margaret Baker comments that "The appearance of Santa Claus or Father Christmas, whose day is 25th of December, owes much to Odin, the old blue-hooded, cloaked, white-bearded Giftbringer of the north, who rode the midwinter sky on his eight-footed steed Sleipnir, visiting his people with gifts. … Odin, transformed into Father Christmas, then Santa Claus, prospered with St Nicholas and the Christchild became a leading player on the Christmas stage."
Looks like the christians didn't invent Santa, they stole him!

I was gonna say, isn't Christmas derived from a Pagan holiday too?

RE: Santa Claus was invented by the church.
You better watch out
You'll run and cry
Don't waste your pouts.
I'm telling you why
Santa Claws is coming.. for you.

He's written a list
Checking it thrice;
Gonna play the slice and dice
Santa Claws is coming... for you.

He knows where you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows your daily schedule
So watch out for goodness sake

Ohhhhhhhh...
You'd better shout loud
You know that you'll cry
You better run when he aims for your eyes
Santa Claws is coming... for you.

Putting your own lyrics into a song is fun.
