Fact of the day: Christkind

In the United States during Christmas kids believe in the gift-giving Santa Claus, but did you know that the Jolly red man isn't the only gift giver in town......or the world. In Austria, Germany and a few other countries many kids beleive in Christkind a blonde angel who was actually promoted by Martin Luther to discourage the gift-giving character based on St. Nicholas. I don't know how that works out, but I know some guys wouldn't mind sitting on her lap instead of a big fat guy.
