There are many legends associated with Christmas. Saint Nicholas, who was a patron saint of children, is a prominent figure in many cultures and countries.
Santa Claus and Father Christmas both are names for generous fatherly figures who bring Christmas gifts and treats to children.
Santa Claus lives at the North Pole with his elves and works in his workshop, making toys for children.
He drives a sled pulled by eight flying, reindeer and Rudolph the red nosed reindeer on Christmas Eve. He reads all the letters children send him telling him what they want for Christmas, and makes a list of who has been naughty or nice.
Christmas Eve, he races round the world delivering Christmas gifts,
sliding down chimneys and eating his cookies and milk.
In some countries children hang Christmas stockings on the fireplaceor put shoes by the fireplace to be filled with goodies by Santa, Father Christmas or the Christ Child on Christmas Eve.
