    Historically, Santa was a devil figure in Finland.

    The original character Nuttipukki was an evil spirit that would go from door to door demanding presents and leftovers from the yule feast.

    It later turned into Joulupukki which gave gifts instead of taking them.

    Eventually that turned into the classic Coca-Cola Santa, but you can still find goats as Christmas decoration in Finland and Sweden.
