St Nicholas St. Nicholas - Foundation 1


St Nicholas was at one time bishop of Myra. He is supposed to have died on December 6 which is why his feast is celebrated on that date. Recognised for his great generosity, he is the patron saint of little children and school children. After several decades, Christian society found it more appropriate to bring this "children’s festival" closer to that of the birth of Jesus.
