Saint Nicolas is coming to St. John’s

bb91995aSaint Nicolas’ feast is one of the most important celebrations in Belgium and we would like you to participate in this event. Saint Nicolas visits every child who lives in Belgium during the night of the 5th to the 6th of December.  He leaves chocolate, speculoos, or toys to be found by the children on the morning of the 6th of December. The night before, children usually leave a glass of milk for the Saint and a carrot for his donkey.

Here is an internet site you can go to that explains about St Nicolas’s history and gives you ideas for activities: http://www.stnicholascenter.org

Saint Nicolas will visit the school on the 6th of December in the afternoon and we will sing the French songs that we practiced.

Have a great Saint Nicolas!
