Needless to say, St Nicholas’s possible Klingon origin helps to explain the zealous violence he expressed toward Arius at the Council of Nicaea. Before he threw the punch heard around the Church, the Bishop of Myra was heard to exclaim, “It is a good day to die!” Historians still debate the precise meaning of the exclamation.
