Meet Dutch St. Nicholas (our Santa). The feast is today. He's however horribly latinised (the beard is still eastern, though!).

My church made St Nicholas look like a Coptic bishop in a mock interview with a servant who pretended to be the saint in front of children.

He showed love for Arius strangely.  But did apologize as we all err.

But, he was charitable to those in need.  In that, I believe he was a great role model.  We should all give to those in need.

I remember when I was a child, all the children put our shoes outside of the church.   We went in and did some readings on him.  Then sang the "St. Nicholas song".

When we came back they were full of candy.
My brother brought two pairs (LOL)

Happy feast day!

BTW, I prefer much more the true one st. Nicholas, who is much more interesting, extraordinary (obedient to God, disobedient to heretics - great exemplar for all people that love rebelling in a good cause) than this man wearing a dwarf costume
