Day #11: Leave your shoes out for St. Nick! December 6th is the feast day of the saint, St. Nicholas. My ancestors are of Scandinavian descent so every Christmas when I was growing up, we had a fun tradition that none of my friends celebrated. On the eve of December 5th we shined our best Sunday shoes and put them by the front door with our Christmas list tucked inside. When we woke up the next morning St. Nicholas had taken our Christmas list and left us a few treats and surprises in our shoes. My kids love this as well and remind me about it every year. Do you celebrate this tradition?
