St. Nicholas is known for selling all his possessions and giving his money to the poor. Raised as a devout Christian, St. Nicholas dedicated his whole life to serving the sick and suffering.
In the 3rd century, in the village of Patara in Turkey (part of Greece in those days), a wealthy couple gave birth to a boy they named Nicholas. Tragically, while Nicholas was young, an epidemic took the lives of both of his parents.
Having been raised as a Christian, he dedicated his life to service, sold all of his belongings, and used his inheritance to help the poor and infirm. Eventually, Nicholas became a bishop, and his reputation for helping children, sailors, and other people in need spread far and wide. For this, the Roman emperor Diocletian persecuted and imprisoned him (and other religious men)—but only until the Romans realized that they had so filled their prisons with clergy that they had no place to put the thieves and murderers. So the Romans let the religious men go free.
Upon his release, Nicholas continued his charity work until he died on December 6, A.D. 343. It was said that a liquid that formed in his grave had healing powers. This and other legends about Nicholas fostered devotion to him and inspired traditions still practiced today.

Saint Nicholas of Myra, also known as “Santa Claus” who was born in Patara and lived in Myra where he was a bishop, is waiting for his visitors at the Tomb church built in his name.
Saint Nicholas was born in 300 AD as the son of a wealthy wheat merchant in Patara, one of the most important port cities of the period and the city where the Lycian Union Assembly building was located. Saint Nicholas, regarded as the guardian of children and sailors, became the Bishop of Myra and he died on 6th December, 365 AD when he was 65 years old
The miracles believed to have been performed by St. Nicholas, known as the saint of Miracles, were drawn on the walls of the church which was built by the people of Myra on behalf of St. Nicholas and was renovated over the periods of time.
