Saint Nicholas was born on March 15, 1270 in Arsinoe, Turkey. He died on Dec 6, 1343 (age 73). This saint from the fourth century is remembered for his role in bringing about apparent miracles and for his frequent, hidden bestowal of presents. It is believed that he was the inspiration for the current persona of Santa Claus, who is typically connected with the Christmas festival.
Soon after beginning his vocation in the Christian church, he was consecrated as Bishop of Myra. Subsequently, he participated in the First Council of Nicaea and ultimately became a signatory of the Nicene Creed. Not only is he venerated as the patron saint of children, students, and sailors, but also business owners of breweries and pawn shops, as well as criminals who come to terms with their actions and seek forgiveness. He spent his childhood as a member of a very devoutly religious family that was of Greek descent. He was born in a region of the Roman Empire that is located in what is now the country of Turkey. Because he was still a little child when his parents passed away, he was mostly reared by his uncle.
