HAPPY ST NICHOLAS EVE!!!!
I'm 50% Czech (look at me - I'm freakishly ethnic looking) and one of the traditions in our house when I was young was to celebrate St. Nicholas Day. We hung out stockings up on the night of December 5th and woke up to find goodies in them the next day.
St. Nicholas day almost meant more to me than Christmas. It was special - a holiday that none of my other friends celebrated. Plus, it meant that there was only 20 more days until Christmas.
Yikes! 20 more days! :)
