History

This day falls on December 6th in Western Christian countries and December 19th in Eastern Christian countries. Santa Claus and Father Christmas all came about from Saint Nicholas, so Christmas would not exist if it were not for Saint Nicholas. St Nicholas was derived from a 4th century bishop called Nicholas of Myra who was known for gift giving.
