St. Nicholas Day

As long as I can remember my family has been celebrating St. Nicholas Day. I think it was something my Great Grandmother passed on to the family (who knows how long her family had been doing it! ;). I love seeing all of the shoes lined up!
The kids enjoyed finding their shoes filled with treats this morning.

We watched the veggie tales St. Nicholas DVD, it was OK. We also enjoyed reading a book about St. Nicholas. It was fun to compair the DVD and book; to talk about how it can be hard to compile an accurate history on a person. We talked about the common elements that seem to run through most tales of St. Nicholas. The main point- he was a man that loved the Lord and shared God's love through giving. We enjoy learning about him in this season of giving as we celebrate the greatest gift of all, Jesus!
