It’s tradition in my family and in Elizabeth’s family to celebrate St. Nicholas Day by setting our shoes out on the eve of St. Nicholas’ feast day (today); in the middle of the night, St. Nicholas and his
slave helper Zwarte Piet 1 bring gifts to good children.
And adults. Gifts and candy for the adults too. You know; for the kids.
So we’re keeping that tradition alive in our new family. This was our first St. Nicholas day as a family, so we documented it.
