Explanation:

[STC00552] St. Nicholas was a real person, despite the fact that he is more well known as the jolly old man who brings gifts throughout the holiday season. Around the year 280 of the common era, he was born in the ancient region of Patara, Lycia, which is now a part of the country of Turkey. After suffering the loss of both of his parents when he was still a child, Saint Nicholas dedicated his life to assisting the needy and the sick after receiving his inheritance. There are many stories throughout his life of the saint providing support (sometimes in the form of sacks of money dropped in their homes) to those who needed it most. After his death, he came to be renowned as the guardian of children and sailors, as well as the person most usually linked with the act of gift-giving.
