Saint Nicholas as we are celebrating him today is based on a historical saint. His memorial day is on December 6th.
When visiting, St. Nicholas praises and gifts all good children while scolding and punishing the bad ones. In his golden book, he can see whether children were good or bad in the previous year.
As counterpart and assistant St. Nicholas often brings along Krampus. While St. Nicholas rewards good children, Krampus scares the bad ones with his whip and chains. If the two of them visit separately, Krampus Day is on December 5th.
Originally St. Nicholas Day was the day of handing out the gifts to children, in some countries it still is. During the Reformation this tradition was moved to Christmas Day in many countries to shift the children’s focus from worshipping saints to Christ. So St. Nicholas was replaced by the Christ Child. Due to these changes, in the 19th century the US developed the belief in Santa Clause, which also exists in many evangelic places throughout Europe. There it is Santa, who brings the presents on Christmas.
