St. Nicholas Day
We have celebrated St. Nicholas Day at our house for several years now. There are many different traditions but this is what we do...
On the night of December 5th, the girls and Benjamin put an empty shoe by the fireplace. They put carrots and hay (if we have it) inside for St. Nicholas' horse.
The following morning they find the carrots and hay gone, and their shoes filled with small gifts and candy!
Milk chocolate Squares
Gold chocolate coins
I also found this fun little cardboard slice of cheese.
With chocolate mice inside! I'm not a fan of mice, but the girls and Benjamin have watched the new movie, Ratatouille all week so they will appreciate them. :0)
Do you celebrate St. Nicholas Day at your house?
