Santa claus who is also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle lives in a village near the Arctic Circle called Rovaniemi in Finland. The legend may have its basis in various tales concerning the historical figure of Saint Claus but the modern Santa is believed to be a fat jolly man wearing a red overcoat and carrying a bag full of presents for the kinds.
A legend associated with Santa says that he lives in the far north, in a land full of snow. The American version of Santa Claus lives at the North Pole, while Father Christmas is said to reside in Finland. Also it says he is married and lives with Mrs. Claus, that he makes a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior and delivers presents, including toys, candy, and other presents to all of the good boys and girls in the world, and sometimes coal or sticks to the naughty children, in one night. He also accomplishes this feat with the aid of magical elves who make the toys, and nine flying reindeer who pull his sleigh.
Wondered where did "Jingle all the way" come from? :D
