Saint Nicholas Day – A Feast of Gifts

Today, the entire Orthodox Church celebrates Saint Nicholas Day, a very special feast of the early Christian bishop Nicholas of Myra. Saint Nicholas Day is also a feast of gifts. The fact is that Nicholas of Myra was called a bringer of gifts for his habit of helping the poor and giving secret gifts to people. This legendary habit gave rise to the well-known model of Santa Claus, a patron of Christmas, bringing gifts to children of the world.
