December Daily 2009 - Day Six

The Feast of St. Nick

Today Ashley got to open her St. Nicholas gift (from G&G Wrigley). Did you know that St. Nicholas is how the gift giving and stocking stuffing tradition started? And it is on December 6th NOT December 25th.

Not sure if my family does this tradition since we are Catholic or because of our strong German ancestry. Every St. Nick's Eve I put out my shoes so that St. Nick could fill them, usually with candy. As I got older we just celebrated the holiday with stocking stuffer gifts.
