Hahha Irish are spreading boring stuff. ;D Nah just joking they are alright. Anyway yeah it is St. Nicholas. We don't have Santa tradition in Slovenia except via Coca Cola. One of many things we don't share with Scandinavians. ;D St. Nick's role usually takes some funny guy. :)

This tradition is called Miklavževanje (Miklavž = St. Nicholas) or Parkljevanje (Parkl = that devil looking mascot), etc. (also other names). I realy like it. I will try to be parkl this year but there is no folk interested to gang up into devils around here since folks nowadays are realy boring. They don't wanna have some St. Nick fun anymore. :- >:(

Santa Claus is derived from Saint Nicholas, after Dutch converted in Protestantism they continue to respect Saint Nicholas, so somebody changed him in Sant Claus from Sankt Nicolaus. They also changed day of gifts from Saint Nicholas day to Christmass.
