St. Nicholas Day

 Happy St. Nicholas Day!  Even if you don't believe in Santa Claus, it's great to remember St. Nicholas.  Legend has it that he saved three poor girls from a life of prostitution by dropping bags of gold through their windows for a dowry.  

I like this day because in our family, children always put out their shoes.  The next morning the kids awoke to find little gifts in their shoes (or wooden shoes as I did with my grandkids).

Many years ago, I made a holiday wall hanging many years ago for my adult child that featured some of our traditions, including St. Nicholas Day.  The shoe is featured in the top left corner:

I can't really find myself in a Christmas frame of mind until St. Nick's day.  What makes you start thinking about the holidays?

Have a safe and happy day!
