Father Christmas is known by many different names around the world including Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Kris Kringle, Sinterklaas and Père Noël. A figure whose origin lies in legend, history and folklore, in many Western cultures he is said to bring gifts to the homes of well-behaved children the night before Christmas. 

Whilst his appearance and features vary according to different countries, cultures and periods in history, over the years the somewhat contradictory characterisations have merged together to create the universal image of Father Christmas we recognise in western countries today.
