Happy Saint Nicholas Day!

And a happy St. Nicholas Day! December 6th is the name day or birthday of the saint said to be the source of our Saint Nick and therefore Santa Claus. 

Born in the 3rd century, Nicholas spent his life giving away his inherited wealth to help those in need... and the gift giving tradition continues today...although Saint Nicholas gave year round, not just at Christmas...good idea, huh???
