My kids are watching a cartoon movie about St. Nicholas that they watch each year on the eve of St. Nicholas Day. They've already got their shoes all nice and lined up too. They're excited. They are each going to get a strawsome straw, a fun little trinket toy, 3 chocolate coins, and a mini candy cane.
It's fun to hear that other people are celebrating St. Nicholas as well. I like the idea of doing the stockings that day... wish I'd thought of starting that tradition with our kids. But I think it's too late to change it now.
