Default St. Nick's Day?

This is a very regional thing as I understand it. I never heard of it until we moved to Green Bay. And I only grew up about 2 hrs. Northwest of GB. So even within a state, not everyone does it.

Ever hear of it? Do you do it?

The kids each got a stocking of goodies this morning. Can't wait for the daughter to come home from school and ask why so-and-so got this or that from St. Nick and all she got was whatever.

We did growing up. Of course I grew up just south of Green Bay. We don't for our kids though. Stockings get stuffed Christmas eve.

My neighbor told me they do it every year. Not us.

I had never heard of it until I got married. My wife’s family always did it. So they always send us a little something to put with the kids shoes so that they find it in the morning.
