Traveling With St. Nicholas

This Friday, December 6, is the feast of St. Nicholas. While most know him here in the United States as Santa Claus, he travels around the world, it seems, under a number of aliases. In fact, even his mode of transportation varies.

As you set out those shoes Thursday night, I thought you would enjoy how he is seen by other cultures in the slideshow below.

Regardless of the name you choose to use, this beloved patron of children has much to teach us about charity, truth, and holiness. Want more info? Jump over to the St. Nicholas Center so you can get, in the words of the late Paul Harvey, “The rest of the story.”
