Myth vs. Fact on the Feast of St. Nicholas

This year the Optional Memorial of St. Nicholas is superseded by the Second Sunday of Advent, but I think it's well and good to continue the tradition of honoring this saint in one's home.

Unfortunately, there's a lot of myth mixed in with fact regarding the story of his life, so here's some resources on St. Nick and how he came to be associated with the jolly fat man in the red suit. Also, ever wonder why you always find candy in your shoes on this day? That will be answered here too.

Pax Christi,
