Saint Nicholas Day

Day 6
A not too distant parish has a lending library of DVDs. We borrowed The Boy Who Became St Nicholas, an animated look at the life of St Nicholas. It wasn't too bad, though some were puzzled how Nicholas could put on weight in prison. When Nicholas emerged from prison, the grateful people sang Adeste Fideles as part of their Christmas worship - a little anachronistic. I wonder what they would have been singing in Myra at the time. Watch a little here.
