Well, if you're like the rest of the world, many people have long forgotten this tradition. for some reason someone tried moving this Saint's day to Christmas Eve! well, not in our home. We celebrate St. Nicholas day on his feast day, December 6th. We do ALL of our gift giving for the season on that day. the stockings are hung, the presents arrive under the tree, baking, cookies, treats, peppermints, the works, it all happens on the eve of the 5th & the day of the 6th of December here.
