St. Nicholas Day (hurray!)

St NikolaHappy St. Nicholas Day! Growing up, this holiday was one of my favorites. In my family, we put our shoes out and received little goodies that could be shared with the family throughout the rest of the holiday season.

If you’re interested in learning more about the holiday, here’s a few fun links:

This Monologue: David Sedaris explains St. Nicholas Day in his usual witty way.

This Website: Apparently, there is a St. Nicholas Center devoted to all things St. Nick.

Also, here’s a few of my favorite items to give and share: local honey or tasty fruit butters, exotic cookies from around the world, gourmet sausages, tasty coffee or tea.

Hope you have fun plans today!

Cheers, Amy
