St. Nicholas Day
Saint Nicholas of Myra (270 – 343),also known as Nicholas of Bari, was an early Christian bishop of the ancient Greek maritime city of Myra in Asia Minor during the time of the Roman Empire.Becauseof the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nicholas the Wonderworker. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, repentant thieves, prostitutes, children, brewers, pawnbrokers, and students in various cities and countries around Europe. His reputation evolved among the faithful, as was common for early Christian saints, and his legendary habit of secret gift-giving gave rise to the traditional model of Santa Claus through Sinterklaas.
For the obedient, gifts.
In folk legends, St. Nicholas is a Boronic people before a natural disaster, who is of great help to all who are in difficulty. "Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker does not sit in heaven, but here on earth he helps people." And St. Nicholas takes care of the children, fulfills their wishes and distributes gifts. St. Nicholas Day is the most popular and fun children's vacation. Children wait for St. Nicholas Day all year round and dream of wonderful gifts.
