The Feast of St. Nicholas!



This is one of my favorite Advent feasts!

Of course I teach my children about Santa Clause - because Santa (Saint) Clause (NiCHOLAS) was a real person and I believe in the communion of saints.

Today we are going to take advantage of this FREE Unit study from the eStore:Homeschool eStore - Saint Nick Unit Study

and we're making the St. Nick Spoon Saint!

Saint Nicholas ::: Advent Saint: "How does St. Nicholas fit into all of this? He is an Advent saint because his December 6th feast day always falls in early Advent (Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas between November 27 and December 3). However, Nicholas is a good Advent saint for more important reasons than the date of his special day. Whatever he did, and it is said that he did many kinds of amazing things, what he did may not be as important as the way he did it. Nicholas became so popular because in his own life he was such a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. His life always clearly reflected the way each one of us is called to show God's love to others, especially those in need.
Celebrating St. Nicholas on his day in Advent brings a bit of fun and festivity into homes, churches, and schools. His small treats and surprises help keep the spirit of good St. Nicholas, especially when stories of his goodness and kind deeds are told and ways to express his care for those in need are sought. Yes, Nicholas is a good Advent saint
