Dude, I thought you live in Finland, not in the US.

Huh? What are you referring to? Nostalgy for home region? I don't have slightest of that if we're talking about region we grew up. My nostalgy is more related to Eastern Finlad where I did my studies.

So St. Nicholas smashed a Coca-Cola bottle over Arius' head, correct?  Not the punch in the face (or slap on the shoulder) that we have all been led to believe?

I wonder if St. Nicholas ever thought he would become so popular. I believe he deserves it, but I am sure he's also tired of being reduced to Santa Claus.

He alongside Theotokos and Jesus is a part of the Holy Trinity. One cannot get more popular than that.

This is actually an icon depicting the moment before Arius gets a bottle in the face.

"Arius, I'm warning you," says jolly St. Nick.  "You have one chance," he says, while pointing a finger, "to recant and repent of your heresy."

And the rest is history. Smiley

I think he even overtook Jesus and The Theotokos because he brings coca-cola, while they only bring salvation. Gotta love the times, though. A lot of fun can also be salvific.

Wonderfully bizarre.  I think all mammals are fascinating in the womb.  Your parakeet gif had me cracking up.  I had a parakeet named Jenny and I think this is how she went.  She got herself out of the cage and escaped throught the chimney.
