The origin of the St. Nicholas tradition goes back to Bishop Nicholas of Myra in Lycia (Turkey). Little solid historical information is known about Nicholas except that he was Bishop of Myra and died around A.D. 350.

DEC 6- Saint Nicholas Patron Saint of Children, Brides, Grooms, and Travelers Christian Saint "Nick" lived in Greece, after Christ's birth. He became a priest, and later Bishop of early Catholic Church. Hanging stockings orig w/St. Nicholas. Legend goes he'd toss bags of gold coins into open windows of poor homes. When a bag fell into the stocking of a child, well...soon began the tradition of hanging stockings by the chimney "in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."
