Today is, for many Catholics, the day for gift-giving (some do this on Christmas, some do this on the Feast of the Epiphany in memory of the gifts the 3 Kings gave to Baby Jesus, and some spread the gift-giving out on all these days). In our home the kids put out their shoes to be filled before they wake the next morning.
We also have gift giving on Christmas morning and Epiphany in order to celebrate the true meaning of these days and take the emphasis off of just receiving gifts.
Here are some of the handmade gifts they received:
Christopher loves his little pony made from fleece with little feeding bucket full of hay.
These and all the gifts that we made were so much fun to make and they were very well received.
Happy Feast of Saint Nicholas
