On December 5th, Saint Nicolas will have a birthday.
He was a Bishop in Holland who used to visit families on rooftops with his horses.
He would come and visit the families; relying upon what the parents told him, he would reward good children with dark chocolates of their initials and ginger and almond spice cookies.
He brought two Moors with him. The Moors from Africa had a lot of influence upon Spain at this time. the Moors would put you in this huge bag if you were bad and take you to Africa.
Saint Nicolas made it a point to help all poor families and to bring them necessities .
He wanted to make sure that poor children had a great Christmas.
Do your children like Santa Claus?
