"Saint Nick" is short for "Saint Nicholas", who is the Christian figure upon which Santa Claus is modelled! Because of this connection, a lot of people refer to Santa Claus as "Saint Nick" instead! Ex: Saint Nick visits all children with gifts on Christmas Eve. Ex: Saint Nick has a reindeer named Rudolph.
