St. Nicholas Day
Growing up, we always put out our shoes on December 5th for St. Nicholas to come and fill. It's a fun little European tradition that I am passing on to my own children.
Wanna join the fun? It's not too late...
1. Click here and read the legend of St. Nicholas.
2. Have everyone set one shoe by the front door tonight before going to bed. (It always helps to leave a carrot inside for St. Nicholas' horse!)
3. Fill with a few holiday offerings of your choice. At our house, St. Nicholas leaves one candy cane, one orange, a Christmas tree ornament and a package of Christmas "pop rocks"!
4. Eat oranges and pop rocks for breakfast. (I think that's what the Dutch children do...)
Quick! Easy! A holiday tradition the whole family will love!
