We found out recently that some historians believe that the real St. Nicholas is actually in Ireland. Only about an hour and half from where we live are the ruins of a medieval town, long deserted. But it’s possible that St. Nick has been there for about 800 years, buried in the graveyard of the medieval ruins of St Nicholas Church, brought by a French family who were collectors of relics and eager to keep the saint’s remains out of the hands of Turkish invaders. You can read more about it by clicking here. But it will be hard to prove: numerous other sites have also made similar claims, and one city in Italy is already making a lot of tourist money on their claim. Still, it’s at least possible that St. Nick is Irish now!
