Happy St. Nicholas Day, 2019
Posted by Ruth Weston on
And a happy St. Nicholas Day! December 6th is the name day or birthday of the saint said to be the source of our Saint Nick and therefore Santa Claus.
Born in the 3rd century, Nicholas spent his life giving away his inherited wealth to help those in need... and the gift giving tradition continues today...although Saint Nicholas gave year round, not just at Christmas...good idea, huh???
And wishing you a happy Christmas season with snow, carolers and all good things!
English Ironstone Tablewares... or EIT Carolers plate from the 1980s
