Who is St. Nicholas / Nikolaus / Santa Claus?

Nikolaus 1


Nicholas was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,” Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th, and kept alive the stories of his goodness and generosity. Read more.

Make your own St. Nicholas book (in English) or Nikolausheft (in German) with the story about Nicholas and lots of pictures for coloring and then meet him at the party on 2nd and 3rd December.
