Happy St. Nicholas Day!!

Yes,Virginia and everyone else, there really is  basis for the traditions of Santa Claus.  Little is provable but there is little question about the basic history.

Two interesting resources that might be worth viewing are found here:

and

Enjoy your day and keep in mind that every time we are loving, giving, charitable and look out for the welfare of children and others in need we are keeping the spirit of Jesus, Christmas and following the ways exemplified by St. Nicholas.  I would love to believe that were I Catholic, he and St. Francis de Assisi would be my patron saints.

Who would be yours?

And now when someone says hogwash there was no real Santa Claus?  You can tell them the story of the man who did exist and all the good he did.
