Christmas is a holiday that celebrates the birth of the Jesus Christ. As the birth, date of the Christ is unknown to any one, or at least the exact date is not recorded because in those days birth dates were not considered important.

For instance, in Brazil, a Turkey dinner is made on the eve of Christmas and Saint Nicholas brings presents for children on December 6th. In Finland Christmas is three-day event, starting the day with rice porridge and plum fruit juice in the morning, also people visiting the cemetery and lighting candles on the graves of their loved ones. Similarly, in Portugal Father Christmas leaves gifts under the tree or in shoes near the fireplace, dinner speciality is salted codfish with boiled potatoes eaten at midnight of the eve.

The historical figure of Santa dates back to 4th century, where a shy bishop in Turkey named Saint Nicholas used to leave goodies for children. In some parts of Europe the Saint was called as the Sinter Klass and made it a tradition to put shoes by the fireplace to receive gifts in. The same legend travelled from Europe to the lands of America when the European settlers migrated there. Soon the Sinter Klass was known as the Santa Claus. Today Santa Claus is depicted as a grandfatherly figure with a round belly and a bushy white beard always wearing an eccentric furry costume of red and white colour.
