​Father Christmas (referred to as Santa in some episode titles such as Santa's Grotto and by some characters in episodes) is a character in Peppa Pig most well known for delivering presents to children around the world on Christmas Eve night.


Father Christmas makes lists of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("good" and "bad", or "naughty" and "nice") and to deliver a toy to all of the well-behaved children in the world on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of his elves, who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole, and his flying reindeer who pull his sleigh. Father Christmas can often be spotted saying his iconic catchphrase, ho ho ho.
