WATCH: 'I saw Santa punching Arius...'

Just in time for the feast of St. Nick (tomorrow!), here’s a holiday tune lovers of Nicholas and Nicaea have been waiting for.

Sample lyrics:

I saw Santa punching Arius in the council chambers at Nicaea. He just couldn’t stand to hear the heretic expand his theory how Our Blessed Lord was not much more than just a man. Then I saw Santa grabbing Arius by the beard to pull him off his chair. The other bishops were justified, in assuming this was undignified throwing Santa in a cell for the night.

Watch the whole thing. And sing along! (H/T and diaconal bow to my sibling from the East, Deacon Daniel Gordon Dozier)
