Happy St. Nicholas Day

I've always had a connection to St. Nicholas of Myra, since his saint day coincides with my birthday. I like him even more after I found out that he smacked Arius at the Council of Nicaea. Check out this brief biography, this account of his transformation into Santa, and this liturgical commemoration which includes new hymn lyrics that tactfully mention the slapping incident ("The heretic he scorned" heh).
