December 6 2010 German Culture Newsletter




The legend of St. Nicholas is still widely celebrated in Europe, and in many areas of Germany with Sankt Nikolausabend and Sankt Nikolaustag, and the Saint's reputation as a secret benefactor and giver of gifts made him the model for today's Santa Claus.

He celebrates his feast day on December 6th, and is the subject of this week’s article.
