    We don't, but I thought you were supposed to leave a shoe out to be filled with candy.

    Hurray for Wisconsin traditions.

    St. Nick's Day is the first gift Katie has every received where she got to unwrap it. She was so excited to see the bright paper, but then got confused as to what to do. The pictures are adorable. I just need to get them off my camera.

    My kids get their Christmas jammies for St. Nick's Day usually.

    Okay, here they are...

    I didn't get a picture of her as she excitedly crawled to the present but it's such a great combo of pics, from the excitement to the confusion, to the "oh, so that's what we do" to the utter joy over the contents. It was cute.






    (look at the adoration she has for her brother)


    (She's trying to put them on and squealing in delight the whole time)



    (Wall-e and princess jammies were a hit too. Best response to PJs ever from my kids)


    For everyone else who doesn't know about St. Nick's Day...

    I grew up with this tradition. My mom and dad picked it up from Germany in the 60's

    ^That is exactly why it's so popular in places like Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

    It's a celebration of the Saint... which isn't the same as Santa, and yet is. We read the kids stories about the Saint, but we don't celebrate Santa (in his current image) in our house.

    I certainly enjoyed it as a kid. We always got some candy and a little present... pencils, crayons, a new baseball.... those sorts of things.

    What a great tradition! I love it! Do you guys also do stockings? We always had stockings from santa, and presents from our parents. DH had presents and stockings from santa. We'll just do stockings from Santa, since I like kids to know where their gifts come from and give thanks. I dont really like the whole santa thing, but I loved it as a kid and how can I keep that from mine?!
