St Nicholas

St Nicholas of course became known as Santa Claus.  It's his day on 6 December.  He was a real person – a bishop of Myra in southeast Asia.  The story is that he heard of a family with 3 girls but no money for dowries.  He secretly lobbed a golden ball to each one of them while they slept.  So he was known for his generosity without asking for any recognition for it.
