In Finland, Nuutinpäivä is when young men dressed as a goat (called Nuuttipukki) visit houses. Usually the dress is an inverted fur jacket, a leather or birch bark mask, and horns. Nuuttipukki was a character like the Germanic Krampus. Men dressed as Nuuttipukki wandered from house to house, came in, and typically demanded food from the household, especially leftover alcoholic beverages. In Finland, tradition is still alive in areas of Satakunta, Southwest Finland and Ostrobothnia.

Joulupukki is said to live and work in Korvatunturi, in Lapland and an intrinsic part of traditional Christmas celebrations.
