Happy Feast of St. Nicholas!

by Josée

December 6th is the feast of St. Nicholas and it’s the perfect day to teach your children who Santa Claus really is. The St. Nicholas Center is a great place to find information about St. Nicholas and ideas for celebrating his feast day. Also, there are plenty of posts in the blogsphere about St. Nicholas today. It’s fun to see what everyone is up to.

This is the second year we’ve celebrated the feast of St. Nicholas. We did a few of the same things as last year but did a few new things as well.

Like last year we made Candy Cane Cookies coloured a St. Nicholas paper doll from Paper Dali.

And unlike last year, this year we each received a book in our stocking. Monkey got The Legend of the Golden Snail, Sweetpea received The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, I got Forgotten Skills of Cooking and Hubby got a new computer game that’s being released tomorrow – any guesses? 

Anyways… Here are some other ideas for celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas:

Catholic Cuisine: St. Nicholas
Catholic Icing: St. Nicholas Day – Our Tradditions
Shower of Roses: Feast Days (scroll down to December)
