While naughty children get coal, a rod or nothing at all. Legends say he does this with the help of Christmas elves who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole. Also flying reindeer help him pull his sleigh through the air.
The modern character of Santa is based on traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas. He is the English figure of Father Christmas and the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas. Saint Nicholas reputation evolved among the pious, as was common for early Christian saints. His legendary habit of secret gift-giving gave rise to the traditional model of Santa Claus (“Saint Nick”).
