    St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church

    *Saint Nicholas was a bishop of the 4th century of Myra (modern part of Turkey). His parents died in an epidemic, and he became a wealthy young man. He followed Jesus’ words and sold what he owned and gave the money to the poor and needy. There are many stories and legends of his generosity. He died on December 6th, and this became his feast day. Much later Santa Claus story started (centuries later), but inspired with the generosity of Saint Nicholas.
