LoveToKnow Christmas LoveToKnow - advice you can trust

...
Also known as Father Christmas, there is actually quite a difference between the two in tradition and lore. Father Christmas is from much older legend based in European mythology. He was thought to have carried the "spirit of Winter" with him, and he went from house to house being fed and given things to drink by the household members. He did not bring gifts and was not associated with children.
In the Victorian Era, Father Christmas became more "Santa Claus" like, and though the Europeans still call him Father Christmas, he and Santa Claus serve the same purpose for children around the world.
