Santa Claus (サンタクロース Santakurōsu?) is a figure commonly associated with the modern-day Christmas. He is said to be a jolly old man in a red suit who secretly delivers presents for good children while they are sleeping on Christmas Eve, riding through the skies on a sleigh drawn by reindeer. The character of Santa Claus is derived from several figures, including St. Nicholas.

According to Leivinia Birdway, there is an organization known as the Nicholas Foundation (ニコラウス財団 Nikorausu Zaidan?), presumably a secret Magic Side organization related to Santa Claus, which she briefly mentioned when she mistook the child Fremea Seivelun's comment that she knows Santa Claus exists as a deliberate reference to the organization.[1] It is unknown whether the organization has an actual Santa Claus as Leivinia Birdway's reaction implies that the character Santa Claus exists. No other mention of the organization has been made since.

On Christmas Day, incidents were occurring around the world due to the magical knowledge distributed online by R&C Occultics (including the self-destruction of Anna Sprengel's collaborators).[7][8] The effects were particularly severe in Academy City, where hospitals were overwhelmed with casualties, suffering injuries from the rejection reaction from espers attempting magic (with a Christmas good luck charm ironically prominent among the causes).[9][10][11][12][13][14]
