Last Friday our church held "St. Nick Night" and kids were invited to wear their pajamas, bring their pillows and sleeping bags, and camp out while viewing the new Veggie Tales movie, "Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving."
They enjoyed snacking on popcorn, juice boxes and Christmas cookies while learning about the little boy who eventually became known as St. Nicholas and went on to spend his life serving others. Great movie - I loved it!
I don't think most children learn enough about the "real" Santa Claus and how he originated. I know we haven't spent enough time talking to our kids about Saint Nicholas.
They had some fun giveaways as well and Emma came home with a new musical Christmas book and all of the kids (Ryan went too - he just wasn't photographed) brought home Veggie Tale balloons.
