I've read that before. It's still interesting."Santa Basil, hurry down the chimney tonight." (smile).
Still better than getting a visit from Krampus?
Yes, very true. I have a lot of family in Greece.
What does he give? Herbs and spices?
Interesting, is he still celebrated? Thanks for stopping by my blog Adam :)xxxE from Helsinki, Finlandhttp://dragonflyelisabeth.blogspot.fi/
Great tidbit of information! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Saint Nicholas was not Turkish. Both Saint Nicholas and Saint Basil were Greeks.
