6th December...Day 6 of my Countdown!

Well we are another day closer to Christmas day and today is also a special day in its own right!Today is St Nicholas day or other wise known as the feast of Saint Nicholas.It is Celebrated in certain European countries including the Netherlands which is where my Mum was born and still has family there so she still feels a special connection to this Holiday.Did you know that St Nicholas became known as Sinter Klaas By the Dutch who the brought their traditions to the New world by the early Dutch settlers and eventually the name became Santa Klaus!St Nicholas was from Greece during the time when Greece was part of the Roman Empire and became a saint because he gave all his wealth to the poor and need and helped them where ever he could.So with that in mind we thought it was a good day to share this with you again...

This is the Tin Tealight that mum brought last year when we were on holiday in Dorset ,she went to a local Church fair and saw this and well she just had to have it!
And Sinter Klaas must have been watching over me today because I had a Christmas present arrive from my Aunty Di today....but don't worry I will wait till Christmas day to open it!
