December 6 is St. Nikolas Day! Children traditionally celebrate by leaving stockings or shoes out for St. Nick the night before in hopes that he will leave gifts for them. We had Awana on December 5, so decided to wait. As part of our St. Nikolas Day celebration, we decorated stockings and hung them by the fireplace. December 7 we woke them early to open their stockings and again shared about who St. Nikolas was and why people like to remember him.
