Santa! NO!

Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas, and I learned something new. St. Nick wasn’t just a kindly pastor who gave money to the needy; he also punched heretics.  The basics are this: Nicholas was a contemporary of Arian, and at the ecumenical council called to sort out the Arian controversy (and eventually we got the Nicene Creed), Nicholas thought he should show not tell. He got arrested and defrocked, but it all worked out. You can read the full story and find more fun heretic punching memes here.

Honestly, I understand the impulse, and frankly, it’s not completely without precedent, but still.

Anyhoo, it is The Feast of St. Nicholas. Even though I’m not Catholic, I was planning on putting candy coins in the kids shoes to celebrate the day. However, this week was very mean to me and I didn’t get around to getting the coins. In fact, we haven’t even been able to put up our Christmas decorations. So we’ll do that today, which is somewhat appropriate. Yeah, I meant to do that!

We also (miraculously!) managed to score a Lego Advent Calendar, which has been sold out since before Thanksgiving. I went into the Lego store while we were waiting for the free monthly mini-build, and said, “I don’t suppose you have any Advent Calendars left.” And lo and behold, someone had just returned one! Since all the other parents were being responsible and supervising their children, I got it without a fight. Hooray for lax parenting! We’re also going to try to build our own Christmas village from our stash. I’ll let you know how that turns out.

Happy St. Nicholas Day! I suggest you celebrate with gift giving and not punching heretics. But that’s just me.

    Come on….can I punch just one heretic? It really shouldn’t put me on the naughty list. And hooray for a Lego Advent calendar.

      I think the rule is one heretic per Christmas season.
