Happy St Nicholas Day

December 6 is St. Nicholas Day, widely celebrated throughout Europe… and growing in practice in the US. St. Nicholas was known for his kindness and charity, and is the forerunner of Santa Claus. Many countries celebrate St Nicholas with a parade or other festivities, including St. Nicholas’ friends¬†Krampus and Black Peter.

When my kids were small they loved this special little holiday, which got our family in the holiday spirit of good behavior, giving, and acts of kindness toward others.

Children put their shoes outside their door, or in some countries next to the fireplace.  Good children receive treats or a small gift, which then must be shared with others:

  • candies, cookies, apples and nuts
  • coins
  • small toys
In the US, the act of leaving out your shoes has translated to hanging stockings on Christmas Eve.

Every day is Cyber Monday at our house. Years of living in Europe, lots of godchildren far away in the United States and the birth of amazon.com combined to turn me into a life-long fan and heavy-duty user of online shopping. And now living back in the US I still do most of my shopping on my laptop or iPad or iPhone. Birthdays, weddings, baptisms, graduations: I'm always online searching for a deal! Now, I want to share some of my shopping tips with you. You can also visit me on my blog: She's Shopping Now
