Where are you from and what does Santa bring?
162

PinkyU · 04/12/2021 18:23

We live in Scotland and Santa brings everything that arrives on Christmas Day, family/friends who bring gifts before or after are from them. I don’t know another Scottish person who does it differently.

I see often on here that Santa only brings one gift, stocking gifts or few but not everything etc.

I wonder if it’s a cultural thing within the UK (or wider)?

So where are you and what does the big man in the red suit bring?

I’m on the South East. We call him Father Christmas in my family (though DD thought he was ‘Farmer Christmas’ when she was little).

He brings the stocking presents and then one or two of the presents under the tree. All the others are from us or ILs etc.

Scotland

As a child, Santa brought us everything except from aunts and uncles etc.

With my kids we give them their big present but Santa brings a (substantial) sack of things. I don't know how other families do it. I've never asked.

South East. Father Christmas fills stockings only.
Anything else gets far too complicated.

I’m from Norfolk. I did the same with my kids that my parents did with me. Santa gave us stockings and everything else was from whoever bought it although by magic Santa still delivered those as we all told him what to make

I grew up in Wales and Father Christmas brought everything, except presents from other family members.

We're closer to London now and FC brings a sack of presents (which fills up easily as they're young and presents are bulkier) and a stocking. DH and I buy everything else, as well as the more expensive main gift. Primarily because there's no other way to explain to my DC why some of their friends don't get as much.

South of England. Santa brings a sack/stocking of small gifts. Gifts under the tree are from parents/family/friends and are the ‘main’ presents.
