I have been searching our house high and low trying to find our Christmas stockings and I cannot find them anywhere. For some reason some of my Christmas decorations are not where they belong (in the large storage bins with all the other decorations) and are no where to be found. Since today is St. Nick, I needed to figure something out, so I made new stocking for the girls yesterday afternoon. I still need to make something for Josh and I, but those will come hopefully in the next few weeks or by next holiday season.
Growing up, we have celebrated St. Nick for as long as I can remember. I remember being stunned when I found out Josh had no idea what I was talking about, as well as most others in both Minnesota in college and then moving to the Kansas City area. Even though the girls might be the only kids in their elementary class that will know about St. Nick paying a little visit on December 6th, i still want to carry on this tradition with them.
If you do not know about St. Nicholas or this tradition you should look it up, it has a wonderful history.
