Happy St. Nicholas Day!
Did you know that Nicholas was actually a 4th century bishop who lived in what is modern-day Turkey? He participated in the council of Nicea, which adopted the Nicene Creed. His generosity was well-known, and that is why over the years, he became known as Father Christmas and eventually Santa Claus. The original is so much better, though! You can read about him in my book, Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend. Also, check out this website for some other interesting St. Nicholas stuff.
