Nick Cannon and St. Nicholas both have to travel to see children for Christmas.

Nick was volunteering at the L.A. Mission on Friday and our photog asked him how he was going to spend the holiday.

Nick said he has the same vibe as Santa because they'll be traveling all night.

Nick was with baby mama Brittany Bell and two of their children, Golden and Powerful Queen.

Nick's been criticized for spreading himself too thin with the sheer number of children, with some of his other baby mamas seemingly taking shots themselves, but there are some tender family moments between Nick and Powerful, who seems enamored with her daddy's Santa hat

Nick is used to children telling him what they want for Christmas.
