Today is St Nicholas Day! And a happy one to you.

While many folks know St Nicholas as "Santa Claus," St Nicholas was a very rich person who gave away all he had to the poor, is the patron saint of sailors, and is known as "Wonderworker" for his many miracles before and after his death.

You revealed yourself, O saint, in Myra as a priest, 
For you fulfilled the Gospel of Christ 
By giving up your soul for your people, 
And saving the innocent from death. 
Therefore you are blessed as one become wise in the grace of God.
