|Jan Steen - The Feast of Saint Nicholas - 1663|
Are you celebrating? It doesn't have to be a fancy celebration...shoes by the fireplace with a bit of chocolate and maybe a very small gift is certainly in the spirit! Sometimes we do a lot, sometimes we only do a little.
This year it will be a little feast as we have a busy Saturday. Some goodies in the shoes and a breakfast of freshly made gingerbread.
Here are some posts to get you started:
- Santa, santa everywhere....how to turn those Santas into a Saint!
- My own past posts about St Nicholas
- And, if you homeschool, perhaps a little Picture Study using Jan Steen's Feast of St Nicholas (that's the image above). Here's a little background from the Rijksmuseum where this painting is housed.
