Feast of Saint Nicholas

We started a new tradition in our family this year - we celebrated the Feast of Saint Nicholas. The night before the feast, you place your shoes outside of your bedroom door. During the night St. Nick places goodies inside your shoes. This celebration is actually where the Santa Claus character came from. St. Nick was an actual person early in the Christian church who would teach about Christ and leave trinkets and gifts. The boys loved this - we all had so much fun!

Danny's shoes - since Danny could not eat these, we actually used the goodies to fill stockings!
Robbie's shoes
Our boys - they have so much fun together, you can really tell they are going to be the best of friends!
