jolly old...

doing some reading this week, i found out more about the story of the man behind the santa claus. one story i read says that st. nicholas was credited with fighting arianism in the early church - he stood passionately against heresy and gave all he had for the poor - especially children. (remember - these stories are often attributed to myths, but having studied the council of nicaea this year, this interests us!) you can read more
here and here.
