Originally, Nicholas was a man who left presents for the children in his village. He was made a saint for his good deeds, giving him the name Saint Nicholas. This was translated to Santa Claus (same name, came to English from a different language). Then, as the stories were told and retold, we got the legend we have now. I have no idea how long presents have been coming from Santa but I was sure glad to get them when I was young.

The end
