Reader Traditions

Eliza shared a favorite Christmas tradition with us:

"Since my husband and I both lived in Germany we love anything to do with Advent and have several calendars around the home. On December 5th we put our shoes by the door because the 6th is St.Nicholas Day, we love to get fun things (unless you've been bad, then you get sticks.)"

This is a fun tradition Eliza. My daughter and I have been learning about different country's tradition this week and last (we celebrated St. Nicholas Day too). It's wonderful to learn about different cultures celebrations. I think my favorite fact so far has been that Santa's sleigh is pulled by six white kangaroos in the Australian Outback!

Thanks for sharing!
