The littlest and I rather enjoyed ourselves. I had no idea about this Dutch tradition of Saint Nicholas. Despite being one part Dutch, growing up we celebrated a Christian Christmas on December 25 with Santa sneaking down the chimney - very American. My goal this Christmas is to skip the shopping malls, and instead we will spend quality time with family and friends. There will be lots of ice skating, online shopping, wintry hikes, movie nights, board games, exploring other traditions, baking bonanzas, crafting, visiting, laughing, feasts, pyjama parties, and tobogganing. Doesn't that sound perfectly fun?
