Saint Nicholas Day

December 6th was Saint Nicholas Day.  this was our first year celebrating it!  On Saturday night, I told my kids the story of Sinterklaas and Black Peter.  they were excited to put carrots in their shoes for Sinterklaas’  horse

 

 

here’s some fun goodies that they found in their shoes the next morning

 

these beeswax ornaments smell so good

 

Sarah also got a little notebook, and the three younger girls got wordsearch books which kept them busy all week.

 

Very happy with what Sinterklaas left for them

    We celebrated St. Nick day too…this is our 3rd (maybe 4th??) year to celebrate it. I like to keep Christmas about Christ and am not a fan of Santa Claus, so we don’t do Santa Claus. We do St. Nick, though, because it’s so far ahead of Christmas and he was a real man with a wonderful agenda, lol.
