Saint Nicholas the Great Wonder Worker! If you ever wondered where our Santa Claus come from here it is!
Nicholas is a fourth-century saint known for his charity and is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, repentant thieves, children, brewers, pawnbrokers, unmarried people, and students in various cities and countries around Europe.
What a wonderful way to acknowledge the beginning of Christmas by celebrating his Feast Day on December 6th and giving little gifts to your children or friends!
There are more churches named for Saint Nicholas than any other saint!
