Today is the feast day of Saint Nicholas. I have posted a new video below to mark and celebrate this special saint.
The story of Saint Nicholas is such a beautiful one. His feast day is celebrated every year on December 6th and his love is spread all over the world right up to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. He came from a wealthy family and he decided to give all his money to the poor. Saint Nicholas did it quiety and without fuss. He would drop down gifts and gold coins down the chimney of those who needed help the most. Everyone wondered who was so generous with all the gifts.
One day someone found out it was Nicholas. His name began to spread to many countries and so Santa Claus as we know him today came into being. Thanks to Saint Nicholas, Santa is alive and well. Some don’t believe in Santa but he is real and is present wherever love is present. There is a lot of love in our world today thanks to Santa. We share this love with each other whether you are 1 or 100+ Thanks to Saint Nicholas and Santa our world is a better place. Happy Christmas
