Saint Nick button

Lots of people don’t know that Saint Nick (who Santa Claus is based from) was a real person.

He helped the needy and sick, and even saved a child from slavery under the King. Before he was the fan of kids across the globe, Saint Nick was well renowned by sailors.

Saint Nicholas day takes place on December 6th, but he is also remembered in the secular form through Santa Claus every Christmas.
