Cute!! I remember as a kid St. Nick’s day meant stockings, though sometimes St. Nick’s day would move around according to my dad’s traveling schedule. I really need ot remember it when I have kids!

Saint Nicholas started the tradition of gift-giving, but he always gave gifts in secret.  Normally, he would leave his special gifts in people’s shoes.  This led to a tradition of leaving your shoes out on December 5th, which is St. Nicholas Eve.  His feast day is December 6th.  We got Santa Claus from this tradition, and got the name from the Dutch.

I learned about it last year working at a daycare, because we celebrated it with the kids.  We had them put their shoes out in the hallway at naptime and put candy and special little toys in for them.  It was so fun!  I actually want to do this with my kids someday!!

ETA:  Here’s the Wiki on St. Nicholas.
