My story...past, present and future!
I have fond and scary memories of that from my childhood when we lived in Germany! I think it's neat you all continue a fun tradition!
WHAT? I mean, Wynia IS DUTCH! I need to be in the know on this stuff!
What a great idea! I have heard of it but never knew anyone who did it. Love it, I am all about Family Traditions!!!
I gave Whit her wooden shoes yesterday so she could put the out for Jason and herself...always fun to pass on the tradition to grown kids.
My sil's family does this! Love this tradition.
I love this time of year. Everyone shares all their great traditions. I might have to steal this one of yours (I'm already stealing Annemarie's ornament tradition now I can combine the two). My kids are still little enough that when they are older I can pretend we were doing it all along.
How fun! Did you do this growing up?
my mother used to do this and we all made fun of her because she is west indian. now as an adult, i get it. it's called "exposing your children to multi-culturalism".i better call her to apologize.
I love to hear of traditions floating down to a new generation! I still remember the little red ked we put out for your 1st St. Nicholas Day celebration. I even let you lick the candy cane, although you were only 5 months old. It's never to early to introduce candy.
What a wonderful tradition. How did I get to be the age of 38 and not know about this great idea? thanks for posting about it...I went an looked at the explanation link, too.
i hope everyone has their own pair of wooden shoes!
I feel totally ripped off. My dad served his mission in Holland and never told us about this Christmas kick-off.I need to get in on this.
