The Real St. Nicholas
With the advent of this cold weather, we thought we would bring the Christmas theme out one more time (before the weather changes). Who was St. Nicholas? Well, not much is known, but he probably served as a bishop in Turkey around the 300s.
It is believed that St. Nicholas' wealthy parents died when he was a young boy--leaving the orphan with a lot of money. It is told that he rescued three young girls who were being forced into prostitution by throwing money through a window.
From there, the legend began to grow. Children everywhere have come to embrace this larger-than-life character. Even though--for the most part-- the real story of St. Nicholas has been almost completely lost, the theme of giving has become synonymous with Santa Claus.
