    I readlly come to know now what is the reality behind the Santa Claus! God use his people to serve humanity. And St. Nicholas become Saint by his dedication and his attitudes. I always think why people not become like him. Or we aknowledge people after their deaths like St. Nicholas and many like him. We should follow these Saint who teach us but we only read and only appriciate. When we start to learn and when we change our attitudes?????????

    Looks like a great article but got to say that (since I am from the Netherlands) we do not give presents around Christmas time but actually on the evening before his feastday, Sinterklaas evening, on the 5th of December.

    I really found this adrticle to be very interesting and informative, as well. I learned so much about St. Nicholas and who he was. I was just "Blown away" by the picture of St. Nicholas and how closely his features resemble the character of Santa Claus. I felt a lot of admiration for St. Nicholas with the amount of giving to other people and his sense of love for mankind. He was just a good guy and I wish everyone was like he was. I still don't understand why he "did time" in prison" but that will guide me to read and learn more about St.Nicholas
