Today's entry is about another one of our family traditions. We celebrate St. Nicholas Day on December 6th. Saint Nicholas was a bishop who loved children. According to the legend, Nicholas liked to leave small gifts for children to surprise them. When St. Nicholas died, people kept up the tradition of giving small gifts to children on a special day. In our family, we all put out our shoes out on the eve of December 6th. We put them in front of the fireplace in hopes that St. Nicholas will bring us treats.
Not sure if you can read the journaling or see in the photo, but St. Nicholas left us some special treats. Sean got a Lego Creator set and some candy treats. Luke received a toy truck along with sweet treats. Somehow, St. Nicholas knew I love to read People magazine and he brought Kevin his favorite candy treat, spice drops. We love St. Nicholas day...it is fun for all of us!
