St Nicholas Day Guest Post on Stocking Fairy

Happy St Nicholas Day! Did you know that in Germany, children put their shoes out on the night of 5th December, and if they have been good St Nicholas will come and fill them with treats! Sound familiar? But if you’ve been naughty, you might find rocks or a rod in your shoe instead! If you’re interested in finding out more, I’ve shared some more details about our German Christmas traditions over on my friend Amanda’s new site Stocking Fairy.

And if you haven’t got your stocking fillers sorted yet for this Christmas, check out Amanda’s Stocking Fairy service – high quality stocking fillers for different ages and interests, all wrapped and ready to pop in your kiddo’s stocking. One less thing to worry about!

Do you celebrate St Nicholas Day? I’d love to hear about any Christmas traditions that are special to you. Feel free to share them in the comments below!

    I love reading about different traditions in other countries, it’s funny how different they can be isn’t it? Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

    I always find souring for stockings the hardest part – will have to check out the Stocking Fairy site sounds very useful indeed!

    Oh that’s such a lovely idea to start the festive season. We’ve never celebrated St Nicholas’Day in our house but I’m wishing we did. Wouldn’t mind my shoes being filled with treats.

    We don’t celebrate this,I think we have enough in with just doing Christmas to be honest. December is such a busy time. Going to go and have a read of your post on the Stocking Fairy x

    I had no idea that was the tradition in Germany! In France, we put our shoes in front of the Christmas tree on Christmas eve and we don’t have anything related to St Nicholas but I know a fair few other countries in Europe do.
