This story, told in rhyme reminiscent of another story about St. Nick, Clement Moore’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, offers a rich picture of the historical Nicholas of Myra and highlights how facets of his story emerged into the familiar mythology of Santa Claus. Saint Nicholas: The Giftgiver is an extraordinary book for families to read together on St Nicholas’s feast day (December 6) or anytime throughout the seasons of Advent and Christmas.
