Special December activity

I am of Italian heritage and we always look forward to celebrating the feast day of Saint Nicholas on December 6th. every year. Everyone tries to take the day off from work, and we attend church services, exchange gifts, and have a festive Italian Christmas dinner in the evening. In Europe, December the 6th is a day of great celebrations, festivities, parades, and dancing in the streets. The remains of St. Nicholas are buried at the Basilica of St. Nicholas in Bari, Italy. It is a great celebration in my home that really gets the Christmas Season going into full swing. Shoes and stockings are left by an open window on the eve (December 5th) and are filled by "Papa Natale" with treasures such as small toys, pieces of fruit, and fine Italian candies for all good boys and girls.
