Happy St. Nick's Day
As I get older, I become more thankful for the traditions that my parents did when I was a kid. One of my favorites was celebrating St. Nick’s Day, which is on December 6th. We’d leave out our shoes the night before (December 5th), and there would be a treat from St. Nick in our shoes in the morning. I’m continuing this tradition this year with Husband. I wrapped some candy (Butterfinger minis and a box of Raisinets) and put them in the only shoes that I knew for sure he’d see before work: his flight boots. This link has more information on the actual holiday. (I was pleasantly relieved to see that the holiday really exists and wasn’t just something my family dreamed up as an excuse to have more candy.) Happy St. Nick’s Day!
