St. Nicholas Day

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information please read my disclosure.

St. Nicholas Day celebrates St. Nicholas, who inspired the Christmas and Santa Clause that we all know and love.

The history of St. Nicholas and his good deeds was part of the inspiration of the modern-day Santa Claus and Father Christmas, which is why there are traditions of leaving gifts in people’s boots or shoes (or stockings).

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Clement Clarke Moore

How To Celebrate St. Nicholas Day

Join hundreds of thousands of observers all over the world by hanging up a stocking, or leaving out a shoe so St Nicholas can fill it during the night.

In the Netherlands, children put their shoes in front of their chimneys in hopes of finding chocolate or a small toy in their shoes when they wake.

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.

Good children receive treats – candies, cookies, apples, and nuts – while naughty children receive lumps of coal.

Across the globe, St Nicolas Day is also celebrated with parades, feasts, and even festivals.
