St. Nicholas Day

Ever since I was a little girl my family would celebrate St. Nicholas Day.  My parents always made the Christmas season seem magical.  I love this tradition because it gives the children something fun to look forward to.  On the night of December 5th, you set out your shoes and St. Nicholas comes and fills them with little treats, small gifts and a new ornament for the Christmas tree.  I love that every year my children get a new ornament for their own little tree.  When they are grown, they will have a box of ornaments from their childhood to help them remember Christmas past.  I love looking at my childhood ornaments, they bring back such wonderful memories.

I think traditionally you are only to put out 1 pair of shoes per person, my children like to get out lots of shoes - I guess that means more treats!

This is where we found Richie our Elf this morning.  It looks like he wanted in the fun too.  He found some American Girl Shoes and got his own little treats!
