Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Santa Claus sells 39 items at one time, which is more than any other NPC excluding the Post-Golem Tavernkeep, who has 40 items available at one time.
  • You cannot buy back items sold to this NPC since the last item slot cannot hold any sold items.
  • In Console, he has a description in the housing section saying "A jolly old fellow"
  • "Ho ho ho, and a bottle of... Egg Nog!" is a reference to "Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum," from the book Treasure Island
    • The Pirate also makes this reference, saying, "Yo ho ho and a bottle of... Blinkroots!"
  • He has the least number of possible names, having only one.
  • His inventory consists of mostly Christmas decorations, which means he is essential for putting a Christmas touch to your House.
