You better watch out

December 6, 2022

Today is St. Nicholas Day. St Nicholas was quite a bit different from who we think of as Santa Claus, but the modern version of this character is derived from the 4th century bishop of Myra who was known for his generosity.

His reputation has survived the centuries and St. Nicholas is the patron saint of more things than any other saint. Among them are the countries of Russia and Greece; of charitable fraternities and guilds; of children, sailors, unmarried girls, merchants, and pawnbrokers; and of such cities as Fribourg, in Switzerland, and Moscow.

It is Tuesday.
