December 6, feast day of St. Nicholas, appropriately falls during the Advent season. This feast day is especially exciting for children as they count down the days on Advent calendars in anticipation of Christmas day. One old Christian tradition surrounding St. Nicholas’ feast day is for kids to leave shoes out overnight in front of the fireplace, on the windowsill, or outside their bedroom door so St. Nicholas can fill their shoes with gifts and treats.
