    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    My Grandparents on my Father's side were German. We celebrated St Nichoulas Day every year. that was also my GG namesake also. Nothing fancy. Maybe a candy bar or a piece of fruit tucked in our shoe.

    We celebrated St Nicholas Day every year as I grew up. We received a small bag with mixed nuts (in the shell) on the bottom and then usually an apple and an orange, topped off with a candy cane. These items were great treats for us and we savored them as long as we could. Good memories!!! Was surprised when I moved away after school and married. No one I knew had any idea what St Nicholas Day was. I sure missed that tradition.

    Well my parents were both German, but we never celebrated St. Nicholas' Day, but of course we did celebrate Christmas. (My husband & I have a son and named him Nicholas).
