St. Nicholas Day

December 6th was the Feast of Nicholas. And legend says he would help out the needy by tossing gold coins into their window and they would land in the shoes or stockings to be found in the morning.

So now there is a tradition to put out your shoes for St. Nicholas to fill on his feastday.

How cute is Anna's little shoe!!

Here is what St. Nicholas left for everyone. We all got chocolate gold coins and a favorite candy treat. Ben also got a new car and a see and pray missal in the hopes that it will foster better behavior at Mass (it hasn't!) and Anna got a pair of mittens.
