Re: Update! *add your pics* St Nicholas day

I've never heard of it. Maybe it's a 'northern thang'. My DH's family is Catholic, too. Looks like fun, but this is not the year to add more gifts to the mix (even if it is $1 bin stuff). My MIL and I have even called a no gift truce. I would ask for my dad and mom & stepdad to as well, but I am an only child don't have siblings giving them gifts. I would feel like they aren't getting anything if I didn't get them something.

Re: Update! *add your pics* St Nicholas day

I grew up w/ it in school because I was in a Catholic school. So, yes, we do it with the kids... I was going to keep it small and just do 1 or 2 pieces of candy... BUT I forgot to get candy for last night so wound up sacrificing 1 stocking stuffer a piece.

Rumor has it that St. Nicholas is making an appearance a a church supper tonight. He seems to be in these parts on this date every year.

The kids will get a gift tonight.

Oh stop, you are not a bad mom. I don't "do" santa anymore either. The kids know it's all in good fun

We did ours at night so dh could be there. DS got M&Ms (I know, shame on me for giving a one year old candy), a wooden car, and The Night Before Christmas book with an advent calendar.

Not too late! I just started this year. It will be nice to not have to worry about it on Christmas Eve after midnight Mass!
