A little Christmas stocking stuffer of an episode! The Three Wise Men are common fixtures of most Nativity scenes, but the The Bible actually offers very little information on who they were and where they came from…
The second holiday special! Saint Nicholas is one of Catholicism’s most honored Saints, a figure who would go on to inspire the folkloric character known as Santa Claus. But this Saint did not enjoy a peaceful rest in death. In 1087, an ambitious cabal of Italian sailors decided to rob his tomb in a get-rich-quick controversy that, 1,000 years later, remains unresolved. Merry Christmas!
