The three good men that come to visit in December
Three good men visit the children in Slovenia in December to bring them presents and spark joy in their eyes. The first to come is Saint Nicholas who visits children on the night between the 5th and the 6th of December. He is accompanied by angels and Krampuses who scare naughty children. The scariest Krampuses from three neighbouring countries (Slovenia, Austria and Italy) meet every year in Podkoren.
Santa Claus comes on Christmas, while Father Frost brings gifts to children on New Year's Eve. You can usually meet the three good men around Slovenia throughout the holiday season. The biggest celebrations of Saint Nicholas's Day and tours of Santa Claus and Father Frost are seen in the major towns and cities in Slovenia, for example in Ljubljana as well as in Maribor, Koper, Kranj, etc.
