Father Christmas?

Is this some form of Kringle that I’m not familiar with? When I walked by, the kid was reaching into his burlap sack, so it seemed like a Klaus variant.

    Well today is Sankt Nikolaus Tag (Saint Niclas day), the man is St. Niclas who gives candy or small toys to the good kids (he has a book with good & bad deads).
    Normally he should be in the company of Knecht Rubrecht (St. Noclases servant). Knecht Rubrecht has a big sack in which he puts the bad kids and takes them & they never come back home.

    Stated above, but yeah St Nick was a Bishop:
    “Nikolaos of Myra, was a historic 4th-century saint and Greek Bishop of Myra”
    Bishops Wear Mitres (that kind of tall pointy hat he’s wearing in the pic).
