December 6th 343: St Nicholas dies
On this day in 343 AD, Nikolaos of Myra (better known as Saint Nicholas) died aged 73. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, thieves, children, and students. During his lifetime, Nicholas was Greek Bishop of Myra (which is in modern day Turkey). Many today associate Saint Nicholas with Santa Claus, as the Christmas character is modeled after Nicholas, who was known for secretly giving people gifts like coins in their shoes. The name ‘Santa Claus’ is loosely derived from translations of ‘Saint Nicholas’.
