They named him Nicholas, which means “hero of the people”.

He shared his meal with those people who had nothing to eat, he was always the first to lend a helping hand, and he brought joy to young and old alike. There were no better friends to have than young Nicholas. At a very young age, Nicholas joined the church. It was his duty to help people. Nicholas gave special attention to the children of his village. And they were very fond of Nicholas for his playful and joyful manner. Nicholas can be well known throughout the land as a kind and wise young man. He was soon named bishop of the church. Because Nicholas is still so young. People called him the “boy bishop”. Nicholas wore a long red robe with a red hat, and he traveled on horseback. At every village, happy children would spot his bright robe from a distance and gather in the road to greet him.
In one village, bishop Nicholas heard the sorrowful tale of a poor old man and his three young daughters. It seemed the men could no longer feed his daughters and he feared he would have to send them away from him. Nicholas knew he could help this family. That night, the whole village slept, Nicholas crept up to the hut where the three sisters lived. He climbed up the rooftop to find the chimney. There Nicholas dropped three bags of gold, one by one, down through the chimney stack.
