Nativity of our Lord #orthodox #christianity
December 6, 345 (traditional date): Nicholas, bishop of Myra, one of the most popular saints in the Greek and Latin churches, dies. Eventually, stories of his generosity and cheer became part of the Christmas tradition, and St. Nicholas became the basis for Santa Claus.

Saint Nicholas (270-343 AD) also called Nikolaos of Myra. From him is where we get the famous legend of Santa Claus. He was Bishop of Myra (Demre, part of modern-day Turkey) in Lycia. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him. The name Saint Nicholas in Dutch it's "Sinterklaas" which eventually through the centuries and corruptions in translations we got the name Santa Claus. He was the only son of wealthy Christian parents and his parents died when he was very young. He was one of many bishops to answer the request of Constantine and appear at the First Council of Nicaea. He was also anti-Arian and defender of the Orthodox Christian position, he was also one of the bishops who signed the Nicene Creed.
According to Cardinal Fisher, Margaret prayed to St. Nicholas for wisdom. While most children her age in the modern world will pray to another version of St. Nicholas for Christmas gifts, Margaret was praying to see which man she should marry. As the saint who would bestow wisdom on "maids" in such situations, he appeared to be an apt choice for young Margaret.
When should we hang Christmas decorations?
From Shane Claiborne ~ Do you know the real St. Nick? The original “Old St. Nick” who inspired the tradition of Santa Claus... was a bishop of Myra in fourth-century Turkey (Christians around the world remember him on December 6). There's not a whole lot known about him, but we know that he entrusted himself to Jesus early in his life, and when his folks died, he gave away all the inheritance to the poor.

Holy Virgin Pelagia (3rd cent Tarsus, Asia Minor) heard about Christ through friends and believed. To remain pure, she refused to marry a prince and fled home to be baptized. The prince committed suicide; the emperor also proposed and Pelagia refused. Her flesh melted like myrrh in a red-hot oven, filling the city with fragrance; her unharmed bones were cast out of the city. 4 lions guarded them until they were found by the Bishop who had baptized her; he buried them. (May 4)

St. Athanasius of Alexandria - 4th century Bishop, Confessor of the Faith vs. Arianism, and Doctor of the Church. Feast day - 5/2. St. Athanasius, help me to follow your example in vigorously defending the divinity of Jesus Christ.
O Holy father Athanasius, like a pillar of orthodoxy you refuted the heretical nonsense of Arius by insisting that the Father and the Son are equal in essence. O venerable father, beg Christ our God to save our souls.
