Saint Nicholas Day (:

December 10, 2014

Without pressing any religious views, let me tell you all about St. Nicholas Day.
The story goes something along the lines of St. Nicholas helping unfortunate people delivering money and gifts to the needy. As he delivered these gifts into children's stockings and shoes and continuously helped people, he became a saint earning a holiday on December 6th. 

That being told, my family gets together on the 6th at my grandma's house. She has stockings for everyone in my family and they are typically filled with candy and each of the grandchildren get pajamas and treats and it's a nice day for the family to get together between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
