There's more than one Santa!!!08:00
Think it's all Santa going round giving gifts? You're wrong....no wonder he can do it all in one night with all of these helpers:
The actual gift givers are different in various countries:
Spain and South America: The Three Kings
Italy: La Befana (a kindly old witch)
England: Father Christmas
France: Pere Noel (Father Christmas)
Russia: In some parts - Babouschka (a grandmotherly figure)
Other parts it is Grandfather Frost.
Germany: Christkind (angelic messenger from Jesus)
She is a beautiful fair haired girl with a shining crown of candles.
Scandinavia: a variety of Christmas gnomes. One is called Julenisse
Holland: St Nicholas.
I like Germany's one, I wouldn't mind having an angel bring me my lump of coal this year :)
