I use two fairly interchangeably, so I went for the option I think I use more

To me, Santa Claus is the legendary gift-giver, St. Nicholas is the historical bishop, Father Christmas is a character who appears in the Chronicles of Narnia before C.S. Lewis tightened up his world-building, and Kris Kringle is a bizarre mixture of traditions.

Ofcourse I call him "Jultomten", as I live in Sweden:-)

He arrived early today on this night on the porch, where he ate a healthy portion of porridge (or rice pudding now days) If he likes the meal, he sees that household, animals and livestock are healthy throughout next year.

So says the tradition, The bugger believes it:-)

Actually, I don't call him, because I don't know his number.

*Rimshot!*

Any of the above. It really depends on the context and meaning of the conversation or what I'm writing. Each focuses the image a little differently of a benevolent spirit of Christmas. :)

If you want to call him, That is easy,

Try +358 16 3562096 Santa Claus Village, Rovaniemi Finland

Even if I think he's gone on holiday now:-)



And I actually think that the warm and cosy feeling that they call "Christmas spirit" really get you in a extra receptive mode and get your common sense to take time off, What do you do not do for the twinkling eyes of children, you are completely powerless and totally at their (and the Merchants) mercy:-)

After seeing and hearing the Tiny Wootmas Carolers (in Second Life), I can't help but call him Santa Paws. Wootberry jam for everyone!

In the Netherlands he is called Kerstman (Christmas man). We already had Sint Nicolaas (Saint Nicholas) before the Disney character was invented.
