The rest of the WTRW crew is sharing titles on the topic of manners this week, but seeing as how today’s Saint Nicholas Day I figured they’d forgive my deviation… I’m poised with our favorite Saint Nicholas books at the ready in order to celebrate right proper like.
The kids set their boots out before bed last night in hopes of discovering a few gold chocolate coins this morning.
We’re also hosting our annual Gingerbread House Decorating Party— our tenth annual, this year quite simple with just the cousins. I’ve heard said that gingerbread men originated as an homage to Saint Nicholas, which is why you sometimes find them with a pointed head representing a bishop’s hat.
This is pretty much as close as we really get to Santa, celebrating in a more traditional European fashion we focus on the real-life man who loved Jesus and blessed others generously in secret, giving glory to God.
Our hosts will still share a themed selection of our favorite books each week.
By linking up you agree that if your blog post is selected to be featured on any of our hosts’ blogs that we can use an image from your post with a link back to your post.
This list has our book themes, but you don’t have to stick to that to link up–any family-friendly posts are welcome. So, come on! Join in the fun!
