St. Nicholas is said to be the protector of unfortunate children.

This story is said to be the origin of the Christmas gift tradition.

During the celebrations, which vary from region to region, St. Nicholas rewards children's good behavior with gifts and treats, often assisted by a menacing-looking companion who is charged with punishing those who have been naughty.
