Durham St. Nicholas of Myra

 

Ever wonder about Jolly Old St. Nicholas? Well, here’s his story. St. Nicholas of Myra was a Christian priest who earned a reputation for kindness and wisdom. He provided for his church members by giving gifts during the night. He never liked to be seen giving these gifts and believed that every person should help his friends and neighbors with no expectation of return.

As a portrayer of St. Nicholas, it’s emphasized that gift-giving is to be done without receiving any reward. We should help others because that is what Christ would want us to do. This characterization of St. Nicholas is a religious portrayal. If you would like a virtual visit from St. Nicholas for your church or group to explain his origins, please contact us as soon as possible. In-person visits from St. Nicholas will resume in 2021.
