In many countries, Santa Claus is a jolly fat man dressed in a red suit sporting a white beard. He appears in late December around the world to deliver gifts to children. Traditions and the appearance of Santa Claus varies based on historical traditions. The constant is that Santa is a friendly, benevolent guy and kids look forward to his coming to town. It's also true that he has many names and lives somewhere in the north where it's really cold.
