Jolly Old Saint Nick!

Just as the rhyme goes:

“His eyes – how they twinkle,

His dimples so merry!

His cheeks were like roses,

His nose like a cherry!”


Nicholas was a bishop in the city of Myra. He was a holy man who remained popular for his outstanding generosity, especially with children. He gave out his wealth to those in need. He was proclaimed a saint soon after his death and since then he has become one of the most popular saints ever. Nowadays we often see him dressed in his red suit, riding his magical sleigh and delivering gifts and toys to children all over the world.  Most people refer to him as Santa Claus or Father Christmas.

His feast day is the 6th of December. May we all try to be generous with each other. Generosity does not always cost money…it is enough to be generous with smiles and by being kind.
