Every child and of course every adult has heard about Santa Claus. No winter passes without waiting for his miracles, but few people remember that this Christmas figure originated from St. Nicholas who practiced charity and secretly brought gifts to poor people with kids. On December 6 the world commemorates this saint of the late third and early fourth century. Many miracles are connected with his name! St. Nicholas secretly helped three dowerless girls, throwing bags of gold into their window – and the gold fell into stockings hanged to dry. For that reason children expecting gifts from Santa Claus hang their best socks for the night. What’s more, St. Nicholas is a patron of those who travel in the sea.
On the threshold of Christmas the famous Polish organist Marek Stefański presents a beautiful concert programme dedicated to St. Nicholas. Perhaps the Saint himself will arrive… Anyway, surprises are no doubt awaiting children and adults!
