hi i've always called him santa and father christmas. here in belgium tho they also have a thing on the 6th december which is almost like xmas but just for children, and its called Sinta klaas (or sint niklass) so even supoosed to be the same man lol, again wearing red and coming down chimneys but he actually looks more like a bishop, with a bishops hat and staff, also he has no raindeer, instead he has a mate called Black Pete (Zwarte Piet) who goes down the chimney for him cos Sint nik is too fat to get down lol (ooh by the way Zwarte PIet is only black cos he's covered in chimney dust, not that he's sent up the chimney because he's black) but that is gonne get very confusing once our LO has arrived lol
