Saint Nicholas has been dancing through the imaginations of children all over the world for nearly 2,000 years! The big-hearted philanthropist was left orphaned when his parents died in an epidemic, but he always remembered his mother’s words of love and charity.
Saint Nicholas spent all of his inheritance helping the poor and others in need and was well known for protecting children.
Though the legend of Ol’ Saint Nick has changed drastically over the last few millennia, he has always been a figurehead of hope, cheer and charity for children and adults all over the world.
