Update! *add your pics* St Nicholas day

Update! Pictures! Add your pictures from this morning if you took any!
Alannah and her loot

Me! My kids filled my stocking. Excuse the morning funk!


Alannah putting her new ornament on the tree

our tree










So who celebrates? And how? We put out our stockings on the eve of St. Nick's day (tonight) and in the morning the girls get their stockings. I love it because it sort of splits of Christmas.

I grew up with this tradition as I lived in the Netherlands as a child for a while but I'm not passing it on. We have tons of other traditions and its just a lot to fit into the month of December.

Re: St Nicholas day

We put our shoes out and the kids get a few special treats they usually don't have (juice boxes, some candy) and a few toys from the $1 bin at Target. This year I also splurged a little and got them each a new Christmas movie.

My 5 year old is so excited he's had his shoes out since Sunday

I grew up doing the same thing and we're starting the tradition for DD and DS this year!!

I'm not surprised we have the same tradition though, b/c I'm in WI too.

Yeah, I've found more people celebrate St Nick day than not here in Wisconsin. Not sure if it's regional but yeah, it's pretty big here. We belong to an Episcopal church and St. Nicholas is very much celebrated.

I'm in WI and we celebrate it too. We put out our shoes and they get filled with a few small toys, chocolate coins, and new books.

Is it weird that I get skeeved out by putting stuff in shoes LOL! That's why we just do stockings.

I wonder why it's so prevelent in our state and in other places people have never even heard of it?

Re: St Nicholas day

For me it's a Catholic thing We celebrate lots of feast days no one has ever heard of. I don't know if non-Catholics around here do it, but growing up, it's just what all of my Catholic friends and family did.
