"Interestingly, there
was a time Quakers didn't participate in Christmas at all but
everyone this century is pretty main stream about it."

There was a time America didn't participate at all!! That's why I find
the whole "attack on Christmas" stuff hilarious.

Thanks for sharing about your St. Nick festivities.
We went to storytelling in downtown Jonesborough tonight, where one of
the storytellers told the history of St. Nick and Christ Mass up to
the 1800's and Clement Moore (famous for "Twas the Night Before
Christmas...") and how that affected our modern day traditions,
including the image of "St. Nick".
