Answer the questions and tag 3 bloggers to do the same.

The name Santa Claus evolved from Sinter Klass, a nickname for Saint Nicholas. What language is Sinter Klaas? Dutch, of course!

Who sang? 
“It’s Christmas in heaven 
There’s great films on TV 
‘The Sound of Music’ twice an hour 
And ‘Jaws’ one, two and three.”  Dunno, and may I say what horrid lyrics!

Where does the Danish version of Santa Claus live throughout the year? pretty sure he hangs out in Spain during the summer months….

What is the name of Aladdin’s mother? Mom? Mother? Ama (mother in the middle east). heck if I know

In Jack and the Beanstalk, what does Jack get in exchange for his mother’s cow? a bean…but it was a magic bean so any boy would definitely trade in a cow for it. (can you see me rolling my eyes?)
