An OLD man here at my school told us one of the stories about Santa Claus.. Saint Nicolaus. He was one of the bishops chosen by the pope to decide what Christianity (and the Bible) should be about, but he was apparently a man of his own mind, so he protested in some things in that regard.
He was then put to jail.
One night he was getting a visit from the Arc angle Michael, that told him, he would get his freedom and respect, bu tin return he was to give mankind the greatest gift of all: The gift of tomorrow....
I have a good life - a beautiful girlfriend - a job - a hobby - too many cameras and lenses to use, so I'll "settle" for "tomorrow".
Merry Christmas all!
