Saint Nicholas Day

Today, December 6, is Saint Nicholas Day in Eastern Europe.  In the morning of this day East European children receive gifts.  Last night, December 5, they dressed in angel and devil costumes and went caroling.  Most families have the traditional Tannenbaum, or German-style Christmas Tree, and light one of the four candles in the advent wreath each Sunday in December.  For more information, click here and click here.

If you celebrated Saint Nicholas Day, what did you receive and give today?
