If you want to know more about St Nicholas you could start with St Nicholas Day here which has links to some facts, many legends and an interesting comparison between St Nicholas (whose feast day is today) and Santa Claus.
This is the 400th post on this blog. That has nothing to do with St Nicholas Day and is of no real significance to anyone. Happy St Nicholas Day to all who read this today and congratulations to me for persistence if nothing else! And grateful thanks to people who have encouraged me to keep going and from whom I have learned so much.
Now - do you think there could be 400 smarties in those clogs?
