Saint Nicholas
 

Krampus is the evil counterpart to Saint Nicholas who had the habit of giving to the poor.St. Nicholas day is celebrated by gifts such as candy or putting a few coins in a good child’s shoe,something Nicholas himself was known to do. Saint Nicholas was real; he was the fourth century bishop and abbot in Myra and was well known for giving gifts to the poor.Nicholas was a champion of the anonymous gift; anonymous charity. He was ordained by his uncle the archbishop and took over his uncle’s role after his death. During the Diocletian persecution he was imprisoned for his preaching, but was later freed. Saint Nicholas was the original Santa Claus before Madison Avenue and Coca-Cola transformed him into a portly pitchman. Here are links to read about the real Saint Nicholas:
