Happy St. Nicholas Day!


The stockings were hung

This is my first year doing stockings on St. Nicholas Day.  Well, it’s my first day celebrating St. Nicholas Day at all, as far as I can remember.  We’ll be out of town for Christmas, so this seemed like a great alternative (this, and traditional presents on the feast of Epiphany—way to spread the joy as long as possible, right?).  Plus, we have this great book by a relative of a friend of my sister.  Well, we have the book, but that doesn’t mean the little one wanted to sit still to actually hear it.  So, I educated myself, and counted it good.

What is it?

May your Advent season be filled with anticipation,


and joy,


and a feeling of generosity.


  1. oh my goodness, he is so cute :):):) miss you guys.

  2. Great idea! We might have to adopt St. Nicholas day too, since we're inevitably Texas-bound for Christmas. We also like the Epiphany tradition, and there's nothing wrong with a whole month of Christmas festivities!
