St. Nicholas of Tolentine Catholic Church - Bronx, N.Y. my church, I lived right across the park

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."
