On Dec. 6, some countries celebrate a visit from Saint Nicholas. "In many Catholic parts of Europe, children still receive his 'visit' on the eve of his feast," states a Catholic Culture article. "St. Nicholas is a heavenly messenger to our homes, for, coming at the beginning of Advent, he admonishes us to prepare our hearts for a blessed and holy Christmas."
In our home, the children leave out their shoes on the eve before St. Nicholas Day, and in the morning, the children open their small gifts found in their shoes. We have a special breakfast and watch a Saint Nicholas DVD.
