Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, or simply Santa, is a legendary figure of Western culture who is said to bring gifts to the homes of well behaved children on Christmas Eve, 24 December, and the early morning hours of Christmas Day on 25 December. The modern Santa Claus grew out of traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas, a fourth century Greek bishop and gift giver of Myra, the British figure of Father Christmas, the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, himself based on Saint Nicholas, the German figure of the Christkind, and the holidays of Twelfth Night and Epiphany and their associated figures of the Three Kings, based on the gift giving Magi of the Nativity) and Befana.
