Advent Day 6: Will the Real St. Nicholas Please Stand Up?

Hello, Coffee Talkers,

Hope y'all had a great feast of St. Nicholas. We sure did! We got a few nice treats in our shoes this morning, a great kick off (punny) to a great feast day.

I love to tell people about the real St. Nicholas, as the stories of this Bishop from modern-day Turkey are full of inspiration and intrigue. He is best known for his great generosity, and for his slapping or punching Arius due to his heretical views as he expressed them at the 4th century council of Nicaea. This meme is so funny to me....

If you want to learn more about St. Nicholas, and to get some great ideas for St. Nick-related crafts, projects, and more, check out St. Nicholas Center.

Also, if you are among my friends who forgot (or did not know) about the 'putting out your shoes for a St. Nicholas treat' custom from last night, I'll bet that St. Nick would not mind making a visit to find your smelly footwear this fine evening!

As always, thanks for stopping by, and be assured of my prayers.

Peace and all good,
