Feast Day --December 6
Saint NIcholas was a bishop in what is now Turkey. His parents died when he was a young man, leaving him money he used to aid the poor. Nicholas liked giving surprise gifts. One night he went to the house of a poor man and threw a bag of coins in an open window so that the man's daughters would have money to marry. When they learned it came from Nicholas, the family wanted to thank him, but Nicholas told them to thank God instead. People still give gifts on his feast day.
Patron of children, sailors, and fishermen. Saint Nicholas was very short and had a broken nose.
Saint Nicholas help us to always give generously to those in need. Amen.
