    What do u call old st nic?

    I used to call him father christmas and so did my OH but now the kids call him santa claus....
    Not sure where they got it from, but :shrug:

    Im just wondering really. I thought Santa Claus was the American name and Father Christmas the UK one?

    Anyone wanna give me a history lesson?? :dohh:

    :wacko:
