St. Nicholas Day

Read all about St. Nick here.

I really enjoy using the book called Mrs. Sharp's Traditions..reviving Victorian family celebrations of comfort & Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach. The Victorian era is simply my favorite of all time.

Many Victorian families as well as today's families, Christmas really begins with a visit from Saint Nicholas on his birthday, December 6. This old fashioned tradition can start setting the mood for wonderful holiday memories for your families.

We are new to this tradition..yet love it so. I would like to say..visit my friend Kelli here to see what her family does for St. Nicholas Day !!! It is wonderful !!! Happy Birthday Ole' St. Nick !!!

Here is how we celebrated.......

We left goodies for St. Nicholas and his white horse in two old wooden shoes....

and left behind goodies for the kid's in return.

The kids really enjoyed this new Tradition.

Happy returns,
