I don’t know if anyone knows or even cares. But today, December 6th, is St. Nicholas day. Yeah, the Dutch apparently transferred the practices associated with this day to Christmas. That is why we celebrate Santa Claus/St. Nick on that particular day, and not this.
So I guess I just have three questions for you all:
[li]Did you know?[/li][li]Did you care?[/li][li]And, what are you doing for this day, if anything?[/li][/ul]
I should tell you too, where I live, Detroit, a Detroit museum used to do something special on this day, I recall. They were quite creative too, I remember. One year, they had the kids see Miss Pockets. She was Santa Claus’s secretary. Not really, they just made it up. But you have to give them credit for creativity, if nothing else.
Presently I don’t know or follow what Detroit, or anyone else, does on this day. But if you do, or know someone who does, please post.
