Hop on over to Pie Jesu for an inspiring post on Being Saint Nicholas. You’ll find beautiful ways to celebrate St. Nicholas Day on December 6th, complete with story recommendations, a cookie recipe, and family giving ideas.
You might even consider celebrating the saints each on his or her special day throughout the year; this is an alternative, for grade two in particular, to doing a main lesson block. There is something so magical about living deeply into the story and food and special gifts each saint has to offer. This post could help you get started with that!
