The prototype of Santa Claus is a Christian saints Nicholas, known for
his charity work - using a secret gifts to poor people with children.
Initially, December 6, the day of St. Nicholas on the church calendar
in Europe was accepted to give gifts to children on his behalf. However,
during the Reformation, when the veneration of saints was not approved
in Germany and neighboring countries, a character who distributes gifts,
became the Christ Child, and the day of their presentation was postponed to
6 December 24, ie the Christmas fairs. During the Counter-Reformation gifts
to children again began to be awarded in the name of St. Nicholas, but now it
happened at the end of December for Christmas. But in some European countries
still remain in place over the old traditions. For example, in the Netherlands,
where the name of St. Nicholas is pronounced Sinterklaas, kids can get gifts
on his behalf and on December 5, and at Christmas.
