St. Nicholas, the bishop of Myra in modern day Turkey, was an early priest in the Christian Church, he died around 342 AD.  Legends that surround Nicholas tell of his love for God and neighbor, especially the poor.  He became known as the symbol of anonymous gift giving.
St. Nicholas Day is traditionally celebrated on December 6th, so polish your shoes, or you may only receive coal this year.
