Happy St. Nicolas Day!
Growing up on December 6th my parents would fill stockings my mom had hand crafted for each of us kids with little chocolates and a small gift in celebration of St. Nicolas Day. We all affectionately called it STOCKING DAY!! and were thrilled with a mini Christmas morning celebration and treat before Christmas! When Joe and I got married I insisted on keeping this tradition and filled him a stocking with specialty cheeses and beef sticks and jerky (he is not a chocoholic me :P). This year I got to follow in my mom’s footsteps and hand craft Titus his own stocking to fill each year! :D
Family held traditions give us lasting cherished memories and a warm sense of belonging as we share common practices. What are some special family traditions you enjoy?
