St. Nicholas Day

30-santas-on-the-way-vintage1

Today is St. Nicholas Day. December 6th is always a special day in our house for the kids. Traditionally, St. Nicholas leaves a clue for the kids to decipher and follow. This clue will lead them another clue and another, and so forth, until they come to the end where a small gift is found from St. Nicholas.

It’s great fun to sit back and watch the kids work out their clues. Some years they have had separate clues, other years they need to put their clues together in order to figure them out. St. Nicholas always comes up with great little rhymes and stories for each clue and the directions on where to find the next one.

Fun, fun, fun.

    St. Nicolas Day sounds like a great idea. Think we’ll try that next year with our son. How did your kids do on their clues today?
    What a great idea.
