The Legend of Saint Nikolaus In German speaking countries and Holland and Belgium as well, December 6th is the most distinctive children's festival of the year. St. Nikolaus Eve is a time of festive stir, it is a time of whispers and giggles, and of heavy steps on the stairs. Shops are full of many shaped biscuits, gilt gingerbreads, sugar images, toys and other little gifts.
It is not easy to uncover the historic facts about Saintt Nikolaus, the fourth century Greek bishop of Myra in Asia Minor, who died on December 6th, 343. In Eastern Europe, Southern Italy and among the Greeks, he is revered most of all as the patron saint of seafaring men.
In many regions, the festivities originally attributed to the gift giving St. Nikolaus have been transferred to Christmas, yet in Western and Southern Germany, in Austria, Switzerland, and the Low Countries, December 6 remains a day of joy for children.
When evening comes, St. Nikolaus, a reverend grey haired figure with flowing beard, will knock on doors and enquire about the behavior of the children. The custom of examining the children, where they will deliver a verse, sing, or otherwise show their skills, is still widespread in some countries.
St. Nikolaus traditions vary as widely from region to region as his guise and name. He appears as Ruhklas, Pelznickel, Klasbur, etc. He is afoot or astride a white horse, a mule, or even a goat.
St. Nikolaus also appears together with St. Peter, an angel, and the Christ child. As the splendor of the candle lit Christmas tree and emphasis on the birth of Christ, began to shift the function of the gift giving St. Nikolaus, Knecht Ruprecht became the servant and companion of the Christchild. In this role Ruprecht became the patron saint of Christmas and was called "Weihnachtsmann," literally Christmas Man, Father Christmas or Santa Claus.

Amounts of Snowfall.
Snowfall varies greatly across the earth. Snow falls in the Polar Regions throughout the year. The heaviest snows occur during the winter in mountainous areas of the temperate zones, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Arctic Circle and between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Circle. These areas include the western coastal ranges of North and South America and the Alps in Europe.
In the United States, the record for snowfall in one year was set from July 1971 to June 1972 when 1,122 inches of snow fell at Rainier Paradise Ranger Station in Washington. In 1921, 76 inches of snow fell in silver Lake, Colorado, which set a record for the largest snowfall during a 24 hour period.
A typical layer of snow on the ground would melt to form a layer of liquid water about one tenth as thick as the snow. One inch of water may be equivalent to as much as 30 inches of dry, fluffy snow. Snow is a major source of water in many places Mountain snowmelt, for example, feeds many rivers and streams.
