Jewish folklore, don't tell our Rabbi, OK?, but there is a female yiddishkeit elf who visits children during the gift giving period of time around the Chanukah/ Hanukkah and Christmas Holidays. She is a nice and really funny lady that comes around once a year and brings children who believe in her toys, especially us really good Jewish kids who Santa seems to forget or who because we are Jewish isn't allowed to sneek in our houses by slipping down the chimney or if you live in an apartment with out a chimney altogether. See Yenta for origins of the name in Yiddish and in contemporary culture and Santa Claus for that way cool guy from the North Pole all the other kids in the world get their toys from.

"She is such a nice Yenta! And to think we have a real Bubbie that brings the kinderlach such nice toys! Don't tell Rabbi Cohen about Yenta Claus or else it's back to finding a nasty lump of coal!"
