Weihnachtsmann (Christmas Man):19th C. Germany

Weihnachtsmann in long dark  coat
This old gentleman, who was a 19th. century German equivalent of Santa claus, traveled on foot throughout Protestant areas of Germany on Christmas Eve. For naughty boys and girls, he left switches. Gifts were left for the good children. In some areas he was accompanied by Christkindl who assisted him with a list of the good boys & girls.
He was banned in favour of Knecht Ruprecht, (a character of pagan roots), by the Nazis in their campaign to abolish all things Christian during the Second World War.
