I have no clue what the difference is other than a lot of Euorpian countires call Santa Father christma. Or so I thought. Is there a difference? or is there some story behind Fahter Christmas? I know the story of Santa Claus, but not Father Christmas. any one know? What about other countries is there a similar old fat dude giving gifts to kids? I remember from childhood a freind who was from Holland who put wooden shoes on the front porach for goodies, bu I dont rember much more than that. Any one?
