Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, or simply Santa makes lists of children throughout the world, categorising them according to their behavior, and brings them gifts on Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this with the aid of his elves, who make the gifts in his workshop at the North Pole, and flying reindeer who pull his sleigh through the air.
Santa Claus is a jolly, white-bearded man, wearing a red coat with white fur cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red trousers, red hat with white fur, and black leather belt and boots, carrying a bag full of gifts for children. He is laughing in a way that sounds like “ho ho ho”.
He is well known for his appearances in songs, radio, television, children’s books, films, and advertising.
