Santa Claus is a jolly fat old man with a white beard and a red suit, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, and simply “Santa”. But what about modern Santa Claus!

    and to add a little bit more info:

    the name comes from the dutch word for saint nicholas:
    sinterklaas. And Sinterklaas sounds like -> santa claus …. see the similarities?

      oh and the dutch have both!
      On 5 december we celebrate Sinterklaas (saint nicholas), this is more a party for the kids. And offcourse we celebrate christmas with a slighty less popular Santa Claus. Both are giftgiving occasions!
