St Nicholas Feast Day Celebration


At St. Philip we have a special day for St. Nicholas’s feast day. Every year we have a presentation about St. Nicholas and what he did for the poor.This year we decided to not only celebrate St. Nicholas, but we also celebrated St. Juan Diego, St. Lucy, and St. John of the Cross. All of these saints’ feast days are in December. Before we watch the presentation, we leave one shoe outside our classrooms. We leave one shoe so St. Nicholas can give us a gift of oranges and candy canes. When we go check our shoes after the presentation, we eat our candies and oranges. St. Nicholas was born in 1245 and was a bishop. He was known for his generosity because he would secretly drop bags of coins to the poor.
