St. Nicholas Sunday

Sunday, Dec. 7th, our church recognized St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. (His actual feast day was Dec. 6th). The modern day Santa Claus is modeled from this real Saint.
There are many sites that tell about St. Nicholas, one good place to learn more is The Saint Nicholas Center

St. Nicholas was part of both our church services, he offered small bagged treats to young and old, during the sermon time he invited children to come forward to talk with him, and they received a small gift too. Following the service photos for kids of all ages were taken with St. Nicholas, and of course, I didn't pass up that chance... hope I am on his list of GOOD girls...*G*
