Abraham & Mary Todd Lincoln: Constancy in the face of Dualistic Decimation

The dichotomy of differences between the personal lives of Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, made them not only appear truly odd together as a couple, it must additionally be stated neither was the other’s first choice for a romantic partner.

The generous acts made by this one individual would eventually in turn be elevated to reflect the deeds of a venerated Saint.

Astoundingly, the final factor which transforms a Turkish bishop named Nicholas from a saint to the timeless icon of holiday cheer known today as Santa Claus is the archetype-like astrological symbolism associated with his good deeds and generous nature.
