Random Thursday

St. Nick comes tonight!! Not sure how many people acknowledge this holiday. As it's not really so much of a holiday I don't think. True, it's to honor Saint Nicholas. For me, it's also been when St. Nick aka Santa,--or at least that's what I was always told-- visits early a bit and fills the stockings of all good little girls and boys!

Although as I think on it now, it really had to be Santa's brother or something, because Santa is too busy preparing for Christmas!


Saint Nicolas does have the reputation for being a secret gift giver though! He would put coins into shoes that were left out for him. And in fact is what inspired Santa Claus. Guess Santa was in some other sort of business prior to then!

Just did a Google search for St. Nick to give you guys some facts! Have a GREAT day everyone!

  1. It's been a long time since I've been in school, but in French class I vaguely remember talking about this. Thanks for reminding me!

  2. We never had a lesson about St. Nick in school and my fear for Saints really stopped me from Googling the origin of Santa Claus. Hahahaha.

    Thanks for stopping by Thoughts and Pens.
