The Legend of St. Nick Born in Patara, a land that is part of present-day Turkey, circa 280 C.E., St. Nicholas was a Christian bishop who helped the needy. After his death, the legend of his gift-giving grew.

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.
