St. Nicholas

"...In Holland I'm called "Sinter Klaas!"
In other places "Santa Claus!"
They call me Sinter Klaas and Santa Claus.
In France they call me "Pere Noël!"
To others I'm just "Kris Kringle!"
In England you ask , "Guess who Nick is?"
I'm just known as "Father Christmas!"
In Russia they don't say "Nicklas!"
Instead they shout out "Grandfather Frost!"
Though children of the world give St. Nick-names,
His spirit is still the same!
My spirit is still the same.

  ~Fr. Joseph Marquis
