St. Nicholas

Nicholas became the bishop of Myra, Turkey. He was known for his generosity and compassion to the poor. He often performed his works of mercy secretly, so no one would be embarrassed by receiving help. One time there was a poor man who could not afford for his daughters to make good marriages. Nicholas secretly put three bags of money in their house, keeping the daughters from a life of servitude.
