Today's good saint visits a great variety of places—some are big and spectacular, while others are small and intimate. Some take place in the public square, others in schools, churches, and even homes. Some invite the larger public to participate, others are for members only.

All visits, however, seek to bring the true spirit of Saint Nicholas
    • compassion
    • generosity
    • love of God
to children and adults alike.
