St. Nicholas: the original Santa Claus

Some parishioners of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Jackson, TN put together a virtual St. Nicholas Festival this year. I love Louise, June, & Mary's "St. Nicholas and Santa Claus" video.

Some other videos I've found that explain the story of St. Nicholas are here:
