Have you heard of St. Nick's Day?
I used to think everyone celebrated it... but apparently not!!!
I think it is a German or Dutch holiday. I found this online:
"It's not celebrated much in the U.S. -- although there has been some awareness of the holiday in Wisconsin -- but in Northern Europe St. Nicholas Day is a big thing. Traditional celebrations included gifts left in children's shoes (from which American Christmas stockings developed).
Good children receive treats -- candies, cookies, apples and nuts -- while naughty children receive lumps of coal. In Germany, children still put a shoe outside their bedroom doors on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day, and hope to find candy, coins and maybe a small gift in them on Dec. 6. In the Netherlands, children put their shoes in front of their chimneys in hopes of finding chocolate or a small toy in their shoe when they wake."
Anyways, since I was going to be out of town for the real st. nicks day, he came a day early!!!!!!
St. Nick used to always leave me candy and chocolate and maybe a toy, but not this year! He must've somehow found out that I was a raw vegan!? He gave me 2 kiwi, 2 starfruit, a package of dates and a package of raw macadamia nuts!!! I WAS SO EXCITED! It was the best st. nicks day ever!!! =)
