How Santa Claus looks around the world

In our childhood dreams, he came bearing gifts on Christmas Eve for all the nice children in the world.

But this isn't the case for everyone - here's how different countries around the world represent Santa Claus.

Whether you know him as Santa Claus, Father Christmas or Kris Cringle, in the UK before he wore red he used to wear a green suit.

But this Santa didn't carry any gifts, instead, he was associated with eating and drinking.


Santa visits PMGH children’s ward

Head of Credit for Fincorp, Adam Hughes, dressed in a Santa attire, joined his team in giving early Christmas presents to every child in the children's ward at PMGH.

Hughes said it was a great opportunity to visit this special group of children recovering at the hospital.

He added that it was sad to hear that more than 100 sick children would be spending Christmas at the hospital and the team delightedly spent some moments with every child in the ward.

Santa Claus and Fincorp staff bring cheer to the sick

On Friday December 9, staff from Fincorp accompanied by Santa Claus visited Port Moresby General Hospital’s Childrens Ward to give some Christmas cheer.

 The Fincorp staff and Santa Claus visited Ward 1D and Ward 1B, where they gave lollies and toys and cakes and drinks with a lot of smiles and fun for all.

“For these unfortunate children, they will be hospitalised and won’t have a chance to celebrate this festive season. We believe, by visiting these children will bring smiles and joy in their hearts,” said Santa Claus and the Fincorp staff.
