My girls understand who St. Nicholas is now and love the man who once lived for Christ like all the other Saints. This year was extra special since his Feast day fell on Sunday the second week of Advent. St. Nicholas comes on the night of December 5th and fills our girls stocking. He takes there list and leave goodies for the girls. I know that shoes are normal to leave out but my husband grew up leaving his stocking out for St. Nicholas.
The girls this year received new books, 2 new movies, lots of candy and other cute stocking goodies.
Katelin received One Winter's Night
Grace received Pascual and the Kitchen Angels by Tomie DePaola
