Nick is short for Nicholas, it's just that simple, he wasn't even British. The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.

Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. The prisons were so full of bishops, priests, and deacons, there was no room for the real criminals¬ómurderers, thieves and robbers. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church, where a unique relic, called manna, formed in his grave. This liquid substance, said to have healing powers, fostered the growth of devotion to Nicholas. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th (December 19 on the Julian Calendar).

Through the centuries many stories and legends have been told of St. Nicholas' life and deeds. These accounts help us understand his extraordinary character and why he is so beloved and revered as protector and helper of those in need.

why do you act like you are such a christian? The only thing that I see you are trying to do on here is put people down for their beliefs. God doesn't like when you down others.

If Motown does not want to lose money they do not have the name will be changed and any references to Christ and Jesus be from private exhibits and none paid with tax money
I have already called them and they wanted the addresses to send official requests to I emailed the info to them this morning
They will file a Jon doe suit on my behalf of it is not changed

When's the Christmas Parade , where to meet, where to park ?
My DREAM

Powell, TN

#87 Dec 3, 2013
HEY EVERYBODY !!!

I'm finally gonna be in the parade !! It's been one of my DREAMS for as long as I can remember.

Here's what I'm doing:

One of the large plumbing services in town is having a big float. And on part of it, they wanna have an example of some of their services.

Well, clearing up a really clogged toilet is something they get a call on a lot and they'd like this part of the float to be as realistic as possible.

Somehow, they heard had gotten my name...I guess from several of the businesses around town where they'd been at to unclog the toilets, after I had been there (I usually drop a MASSIVE Dump at most places that I shop or eat...it just happens)....and they gave me a call.

The plan is for me to be the "regular guy" havin' a nice relaxing "sit-down" while I read the sports page (from the Tribune, of course)....I'm supposed to peak over the top paper and wave to folks every now and then.

About every 3 blocks or so....I'm supposed to act all surprised....and look kinda helpless or upset...then like I have an IDEA. Then, I'm supposed to get my cell phone and make a "call".....and a guy at the front of the float will act like he answers it and then moves a little miniature service truck down to my end.

To get a laugh, he'll give the "shhhhoooooweeeee" sign when he first gets there...and then will proceed to "unclog" the line.

I'm supposed to act all relieved and happy when he finishes...so much so that I grab the paper and decide to Take A DUMP !....and that will let the whole production start all over again for the next few blocks.

I'M SO EXCITED !!!! Y'all be sure to look for me.

But...I do just wanna get you guys' opinion on something. You know how the people on the floats usually throw out candy? Well, they haven't mentioned anything to me about doing that...but I was thinkin' about....like as a kinda a surprise.....standing up every now and then, reaching down into the toilet, and pulling out a handful of those little Baby Ruth bars to throw out.

I think that'd be a really nice touch. Don't y'all ?

well you will be easy to spot. The only person in the whole parade on the shitter. Better read the rules. No candy throwing of any kind. Not even fake shit. That is a good one. Congrats on your first parade ride at least they put you on a throne. Lol

My DREAM - Crushed

My Dream....it's been CRUSHED.

Sorry to build you folks up (not to mention myself) with so much anticipation.

I'm pretty depressed right now, as you can probably imagine.

I made the mistaking of telling the plumbing biz folks about my Baby Ruth idea. I thought they'd love it. But instead, they got real quite after I described it. Later that night, they called me and told me there'd been a "change in plans" about with little "unclog" bit on the float.

I don't KNOW it was because of what I said, but it sure does seem like it. If ONLY I'd kept my mouth shut.
