These St. Nicholas Day crafts will help you celebrate the life of St. Nick.

In many European countries, December 6 is known as St. Nicholas Day. The holiday celebrates the life of St. Nicholas, a figure who is similar to the one American children know as Santa Claus.


Although Santa Claus and St. Nicholas aren't technically the same person, many of the traditions are shared. For example, St. Nicholas has a white beard and a red robe, and travels through the country giving gifts to the children who appear on his list of "good boys and girls."
