St. Nicholas Day December 6th, 2012

Today we honor Saint Nicholas, the former Bishop of Turkey and the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, thieves, children and students. His reputation for secret gift giving to those in need became the inspiration for the modern day Santa Claus. Catholic and Orthodox Christians celebrate St. Nicholas Day in various ways around the world on December 6th, the day of his death in AD 343. The Christmas traditions of hanging stockings, candy canes, and giving to charity all have roots in the history of St. Nicholas.

We teach our kids about the history of St. Nicholas and who he really was.
