Papai Noel
Learn about Papai Noel. A Brazilian version of Santa legend.

In Brazil they have a Santa Claus who is called Papai Noel. It is believed that he lives in Greenland.

Because it is so warm in Brazil in December, Papai Noel usually wears light-weight, silk clothing. He brings gifts to children during the night of Christmas Eve.

The children set out their shoes for Papai Noel before they go to bed. On Christmas morning the children find their shoes full of small gifts, and they also look for gifts that are hidden around the house.
