St. Nick

20111206-231526.jpg

St. Nick Day celebrates St. Nick’s life…obviously. In our house we would always wake up with little gifts in our shoes; a constant gift was the gold coins. They symbolized the money that St. Nick gave to a family that didn’t have enough for a dowry for their 3 girls to get married (or else they go into slavery). He is the representation of Santa Claus as well.
Sometimes it’s not bad to not be too old…yet…
