Fittingly enough, there was a side altar dedicated to St. Nicholas within the St. Nicholas des Champs church in Paris.
The the left is a painting of St. Nicholas. To the right, under the window, is what appears to be a reliquary. Recall that reliquaries hold relics: that is to say, pieces of dead saints.
The likelyhood is that there are pieces of St. Nicholas in the reliquary. Which is to say, there are pieces of Santa Claus. Or peices of Sinterklaas. I saw no sign of bits of Zwarte Piet, though.
