Part 3: How Santa Became A Legend

As the third daughter’s wedding neared, the father decided to stand guard so he could identify the kind person who had created such happiness for his family. On this night, Nicholas tossed the bag of gold through an open window. Upon hearing the coins land on the floor, the father chased Nicholas until he caught up with him. Nicholas was embarrassed and did not want the exposure of his secret. The father promised to keep the secret, but he was so grateful to young Nicholas that he could not keep the secret no matter how he hard he tried. Soon the entire town knew that Nicholas was the responsible person for the wonderful events that occurred in their town.
