St. Nicholas

Saint Nicholas is a hero of folklore known for his philanthropy many years ago. He is probably the inspiration for Santa Claus. Nicholas is a saint of the Catholic faith said to have traveled Europe, cured the sick, revive the dead, given to the poor and repaired homes. Nicholas was said to have miraculous powers that allowed him to heal the fatally injured instantly. He is considered the patron saint of thieves as he tried to reform thieves but never turned in those he met. He could tell when people lied and primarily concerned himself with helping the poor and children especially.

  • It is likely Nicholas actually existed but there are few non-scripture sources that can validate it.
