It is nonsense - why is this article here - this not original hungarian tradition and was not taken by Czechs from there. These pages are Czech. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Blanicky (talk • contribs) 12:22, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Should be merged with the Santa Claus article
This article is not right the way it is. Mikulás is not "a similar figure to Santa Claus". Mikulás is Santa Claus' Hungarian name and all Hungarians consider him be the same figure. The difference is in the tradition. Mikulás brings the sweets for good kids at the night of 5th December. Originally it was at the dawn of 6th December, so kids would find the sweets when they wake up, but nowadays they usually do not wait until morning. (The 6th Dec. is also Saint Nicholas' date of death who is remembered by Christians on that day). At Christmas it is Baby Jesus who brings the presents in a figurative sense. The English article about Santa Claus also mentions Mikulás but stating him being a different figure. I think this article should be merged with the one about Santa Claus thus expanding those two sentences there. Maybe not simply merged as it would be too long, but in a condensed way. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:31, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
