I briefly removed Oriental Orthodoxy from the |Honored in= list in the infobox, as the article made no further mention of Oriental Orthodoxy, nor its constituent churches. I've not heard of him being celebrated in the Ethiopian Church, and anecdotal evidence suggests that he isn't. However, I've since found a Coptic source, Copticchurch.net, which does have information on St. Nicholas (he is commemorated in the Coptic church on Kiahk 10, or December 19). Thus I've added this info to the text and restored Oriental Orthodoxy to the infobox. I also found a source () that says all the saints of Early Christianity as well as those of the Coptic church are honored in the Ethiopian church. However, as it does not specify St. Nicholas, I don't think this would justify including the Ethiopian church in the text. -- Gyrofrog(talk) 21:32, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Let me point out that 19 December (gregorian calendar) is 6 December (Julian Calendar). Rwflammang (talk) 01:38, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
The basilica at Saint-Nicolas-de-Port in Lorraine also claims to have relics (two fingerjoints?). a) Is it confirmed? b) Is it notable (are there many places with such bits and pieces)? trespassers william (talk) 01:28, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Just wanted to note that I have heard that he is also the patron saint of prostitutes, and this article claiming that his most famous exploit was saving some girls from prostitution gives some credence to this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:06, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
HE WAS ROMAN, BORN IN PATARA (ROMAN EMPIRE) AND DEAD IN MYRA (EASTERN ROMAN EMPIRE, LATER KNOWN AS BIZANTINE EMPIRE). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:49, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
Patara was a Greek area of the Roman Empire. If we applied your standards, we would have to say that Jesus was Roman as well. Elizium23 (talk) 19:40, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
please put something about how serbs celebrate St Nicholas. He is one of the most important saints in Serbia. Every serbian family has a patron saint and most serbs celebrate St. Nicholas as their family patron. St Nicholas day is one of the most important holidays in Serbia. It is celebrated on 19. december and most institutions dont work than or have shorter working hours. Thanks for reading this and i hope you will consider my request. Greetings from a serb whose family patron is St Nicholas — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:10, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
