St. Nick

NPR's Emily Harris reports on a campaign against the Americanization of Christmas celebrations in Germany. German children have come to expect a Christmas Eve visit from a gift-bearing character called Christmasman. He looks and acts a lot like Santa. Some Germans, though, are promoting a more traditional gift-giver, St. Nicholas, who helped the poor.
