If there is one time of the year that kids are most excited about it is definitely that of the winter holidays, and this is true no matter what part of the world you are in, a cold or hot one, as Christmas is quite universal, and a special day enjoyed heavily by all the members of a family, no matter their age!
While the holiday was first a pagan one centered around the Winter solstice, Christians adopted that time of the year to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, after whom the religion and this celebration are named, of course. While the holiday might have religious roots, today it has become one also enjoyed by non-believers, especially through the new character that represents it: Santa Claus!
For starters, you should know that depending on the culture and country you are in, this character can have various names, such as:
There is a reason he has so many names, mainly that the character is an amalgamation of various religious and legendary figures. Saint Nicholas, of course, is a figurehead of Christianity, Father Christmas represents this holiday in English folklore, and Dutch influence is also present through the figure of Sinterklaas, a patron saint of children.
This magical man looks like an elderly gentleman who has the traits of a lovely grandpa, who wears a red and white suit complete with a hat, and one of his most defining features is that he has a really big white beard, and can be heard shouting "ho ho ho".
Some say that he lives in Finland, some say that he lives at the North Pole, but it is definitely somewhere freezing. He lives together with Mrs. Claus, and together they run a factory together with elves, where they make toys all year long.
Good kids receive presents from Santa underneath the Christmas tree in the morning of the day, and this is because he traveled all night long with his sleigh pulled by magical reindeers, getting to each home to deliver presents to good kids. Bad kids receive coal, and hopefully, they behave better next year!
In many households, it is customary for kids to leave out some cookies and milk for Santa so that before he goes back into the chimney to reach the roof and continue his adventure, he can replenish his stamina and feel appreciated.
