Santa Claus Around the World
From Czech Republic’s rapping “Little Jesus” to Canada’s khaki-wearing Reginald, meet the world’s most beloved bringers of gifts. 

USA – Santa Claus. Everyone knows the jolly old man with the white beard from the North Pole who rides a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer. He is also known for his signature laugh, red fur hat, and condition where he dies if he goes more than 3 hours without a Coca Cola.
England – Father Christmas. Pretty much identical to the American Santa Claus, except he probably calls a chimney something weird and British-y like a “vapor chute.”
The Netherlands – Sinterklaas. The most notable trait of Sinterklaas is that he is always accompanied on his ship by Black Peter, a young servant in blackface. This has led many critics to ask how in the twenty-first century the Sinterklaas story can ignore all the progress of modern society and still rely on boat travel, as well as some other stuff.

Read the complete list here.

He’s adorable!
