happy st. nicholas day!

Monday, December 6, 2010

The tradition of Saint Nicholas Day, usually on 6 December, is a festival for children in many countries in Europe related to surviving legends of the saint, and particularly his reputation as a bringer of gifts. The American Santa Claus, as well as the Anglo-Canadian and British Father Christmas derive from these legends. "Santa Claus" is itself derived from the Dutch Sinterklaas.
