Story & Symbolism:
As a young man, Saint Nicholas lost both of his parents and apparently used his legacy to help the poor and sick. As a devoutly religious Christian, he later served as bishop of Myra and was a Christian bishop who helped the needy. After his loss, the legend of his gift-giving developed. Saint Nicholas began into the legendary character called Santa Claus.
It has been noted that he has rescued three young girls from being forced into prostitution by dropping a huge sack of gold coins from the window of their abode each night for three nights so their father could pay a dowry for each of them, one of the earliest documented and most notable event from his life.
