The Baker's Dozen
Saint Nicholas Day
-- Traditional celebrations of Saint Nicholas Day in Northern Europe included gifts left in children's shoes (the origin of our American Christmas stockings). Good children receive treats - candies, cookies, apples, and nuts, while naughty children receive switches or lumps of coal. Sometimes coins were left in the shoes, reminiscent of the life-saving dowries the saint provided. Today - especially in families of German extraction - children still put a shoe outside their bedroom doors on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day and expect to find candy and coins or small gifts in their shoes on December 6th.

Read: The Baker's Dozen: A Saint Nicholas Tale
-- Van Amsterdam the baker was well known for his honesty as well as for his fine Saint Nicholas cookies. He always gave his customers exactly what they paid for -- not more and not less. So, he was not about to give in when a mysterious old woman comes to him on Saint Nicholas Day and insists a dozen is thirteen! The woman's curse puts an end to the baker's business, and he believes it would take Saint Nicholas to help him. But if he receives that help, will it be exactly what he imagined? Find out in this inspiring legend from Dutch colonial New York about the birth of an honored American custom.

Saint Nicholas: The Real Story
-- Was there a real Santa Claus? To answer this question, host Mark Wilson, a distinguished historian, and archaeologist travel not to the North Pole but to modern-day Turkey and Italy. There he uncovers clues leading to the truth about the man behind the legend.

Experience the amazing transformation of a holy man from Turkey into a worldwide symbol of Christmas cheer.
