Paul

Terry, I also read recently that he was one of the best known and loved saints for 1200 years. There are over 400 churches in Britain alone that bear his name.

Great stuff.

We celebrate St. Nicholas day at our house, complete with special meal and exchanging religious gifts. I also preached on St. N at our midweek Eucharist. I love his story as being one that points to both affirming orthodoxy and social justice, a rare combination these days...

Lorna

loved this :)

HeyJules

I had totally forgotten that story of his life. Thank you for reminding us that even in Santa, Christ is present.

Joe

Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks for sharing. So, in reality St. Nic was never a fictional character created to secularize Christmas. Cool stuff.

Thank you for the real story. Excellent.
