We are big about the kids feast days around here. I usually make them a special dessert on their day and we make a big fuss about them but on the feast of Saint Nicholas it is a special day for all my kids, even the ones whose name is not Nicholas.
This is the story of St. Nicholas, a real man who lived in Asia Minor about 1700 years ago. St.Nicholas was a kind man, and also a wealthy one. He always gave money or food to people who were in need.
One story tells about the time he traveled through a bitter snowstorm to get food to a village. There are many stories of him saving or helping children.
