What is Saint Nicholas Day?

Saint Nicholas Day

Saint Nicholas Day is a day of festivities in different countries, and it celebrates Saint Nicholas, who is reputable as the endower of gifts. Christians due west generally celebrate it on the fifth or sixth of December, whereas Christians due east celebrate it on the 19th of December. Saint Nicholas Day is celebrated differently in each country, for example, in the United States, children place their footwear in the entryway the night leading to Saint Nicholas Day; hoping that Saint Nicholas will leave treats in them. In Europe, German and Polish kids observe the day by begging for food and money dressed as bishops, to be later given to the poor. In the Ukraine, children believe that their behavior throughout the year dictates whether or not they get a gift from Saint Nicholas. Whilst in the Netherlands, people bestow gifts labeled with idiosyncratic witty rhythmic remarks, whereas the children leave food for Saint Nicholas’ horse.
