Saint Nicolas : the First Santa Claus

Saint Nicolas celebrates his birthday in Holland on December the 5th.
He arrives on your rooftop with his horses and with two squires (Moors from Africa).
The children put carrots in their wooden shoes for the Saint's horses.
If a child is good he leaves them almond spice and ginger cookies and a chocolate letter in their name.If the child is bad he gets put in the Moors' big bag and sent to Africa.
What do you make of him?
Do you like Santa Claus?
