As Nick listens to the story he starts to understand the meaning of Christmas. That it’s more about giving to others than receiving presents. And by the end of the story Nick is inspired! He wants to give gifts to as many little boys and girls as he can. So he takes his money, buys presents for his family and with the leftover money buys presents for children who have none. He even wished he was able to buy more and fill up the bin! Huge change from when Nick first entered the store. He no longer thought of himself. He was thinking of others.
The Legend of St Nicholas helps children understand that Christmas is not about receiving presents. It’s about giving and helping those less fortunate. As history has said Saint Nicholas was a friend to the poor. And the Legend of St Nicholas reminds us of this.
