St. Nicholas' Day, 6th December: Junior Infants

Happy St Nicholas' Day

The 6th of December is St Nicholas' Day.  Still celebrated in many countries.  They celebrate St Nicholas' Day in the Netherlands.  The children leave their shoes outside the doors of their bedroom in the hope that St Nicholas' will leave a present.  He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him. Teacher left a shoe outside the door of our classroom we will see if St Nicholas' leaves a small gift for our class.   

Saint Nicholas' is the patron saint of children.
