  241. I never heard of Saint Nicholas Day before so no, my family does not celebrate it.

  243. We don’t celebrate St. Nicholas day, but have friends that do. So we often end up talking about traditions and why we do a lot of what we do during the holidays. It is esp. helpful the way it reminds us of the kindness to others and how it can impact the world!

  250. But in answer to your question…no.

  251. No. Advent activities and our regular school and getting ready for christmas take up all our time!

  257. Hm … what time zone is this ending in? It’s only 9:59 on the west coast right now, but the contest says ‘closed’? Anyway, no I don’t celebrate it 🙂

  258. Not celebrated the day, just always tried to tell the TRUE story – one bad incident of a well intentioned 3 yr old telling a friend that Santa was dead, oops!
    Please though, would LoVe to WIN this package looks g*r*e*a*t !!


  259. No, we don’t celebrate it…like other issues, I need to investigate this topic more to be fully understanding in what I bring to my kids!
