Saint Nicholas is real, teach them about him and do something fun. When they begin to question if Santa is fictional, a real " Santa" is still there forever. Also helps keep real meaning of Christmas gifts.
These cute St. Nicholas stand-up figures featured in the craft section of the St. Nicholas Center website make a very fitting candy cane holder. Just substitute a candy cane for the paper crozier pictured there.
Built in 1776, St Nicholas' Church in Moreton, Dorset, is unique because it is the only church in the world to have engraved glass windows instead of stained-glass. They were designed by Sir Laurence Whistler.
