The many faces Kriss Kringle!!!

He has many different different.....Kriss Kringle, Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Nikolaus, Weihnachtsmann, Pere Noel, Babbo Natale.....of course I could go on...but that would make the message very long....

I thought I will try to find pictures of how Santa looks in the different countries....so here we go

Here is the classical St. Nikolaus that they still have lots in the catholic parts of Germany


Here is the Nikolaus how I knew him

the hood instead of the cap is not the only difference. he also wears a longer coat instead of the shorter one that santa wears

Father Christmas


to me he looks similar the Nikolaus how I know him

to be continued

and of course there is Santa

the shorter coat....the huge belt, the cap....funny to me is...that the Santa look is kind of taking over...I like it tho, since he looks really nice.....some Germans moan about it saying....oooooo....Santa is nothing but coca cola invention....then I tell them, that they just continued with what Clemens Moore started with his poem...

It is just interessting to me that it is the same person...and many attributes are the same....but usually each country...and sometimes even just regions in the countries have a different way to celebrate the Nikolaus and Weihnachten....also the main figures seem look the same at the first glance....but there are little fine difference....

I love it
