Jolly Old Saint Nikolaos of Myra

He’s the real Santa Claus/Father Christmas. I first heard of him reading my beloved Chalet School books as a child. I was clearly a very naive child as all of the hints that Santa wasn’t real passed right over my head.

Apparently he threw some bags of gold coins into a house so the neighbours wouldn’t think the daughters of a poor man were prostitutes. If that isn’t spreading some cheer I don’t know what is.
