Answer:
The Finnish Santa Claus is called Joulupukki. It means Christmas goat. It originates from a Finnish tradition of nuuttipukki, which directly translated means Knud-buk. The goat is named after the Danish saint, Knud Lavard, who was murdered in a forest near Ringsted on January 7, 1131.
This dramatic event made the Swedes mark the day as the one where the Christmas festivities ended. In the 18th century, Knutdagen was moved to 13 January. Twenty days after Christmas Eve, young men with goatskins on their shoulders went from house to house eating and drinking
the remnants of the Christmas meals.
