The guy's got a lot of names in many languages.

I'm French Canadian and in French his name is Pere Noel which translates exactly to Father Christmas.

Historically (well, back to the late 18th to early 19th century America) the name went from St. Nicholas to SanteClaus to Santa Claus. Santa is basically a reboot of St. Nicholas minus the ecclesiastical trappings. But the more historical St. Nicholas (with the ecclesiastical trappings) or Sinterklass does continue in the Netherlands I believe.

Joyeux Noel!
St. Nicholas is celebrated in more places than the Netherlands...
In somewhat different ways though...

I didn't quite know the extent.

Just saw this on tumblr, had a good lol..

Tip for the holidays: interrupt any family argument with “I will take it! I will take the ring to Mordor. Though I do not know the way”
