Will you celebrate St. Nicholas Day?

We will!  We aren't religious but we used to celebrate it when I was a kid.  It's cute.  We also celebrate Hanukkah and Xmas.  :)  We are starting that this year...Hubs is like we aren't Jewish, and I countered with we aren't Christian but we celebrate Xmas right?  lol  I'm excited to get a Menorah and put it in the window right next to our Xmas tree.  

I love celebrating.  

Do you know what Muslims celebrate around this time of year?

Sometimes Ramadhan falls around the same time, but they use a lunar calendar so it moves. It has already past this year (unless I'm completely spacing out).  

We do celebrate St. Nicholas day here... but mostly by baking cookies lol. I have a cute St Nicholas purse cookie recipe I found last year and was so much fun to do!

Out of curiousity I looked it up... not only has Ramadhan (one of the Eids is at the end of it) passed this year but so has the other Eid.  You missed it by a month.

I have celebrated Yule in the past...This year we decided to do Xmas and Hanukkah.  I read more about how the muslim religion celebrates by fasting and I am nursing so I can't do that anyways.  lol  

I don't know anything about Kwanza, lol, I didn't even think of it.  :)

We dont' celebrate St. Nicholas day, but I know it is celebrated in the Waldorf School, that is how I learned about it.  

We have a FULL calendar in December, so It would be too much I think to add more.  We celebrate Solstice/Yule, Christmas AND Hannukah (at least, one night we light the candles and I have been practicing  my Hebrew).  We do one gift on Solstice and the rest Christmas morning.  

I actualy learned about Kwanza from an episode of Sesame Street! LOL  GREAT explination and a peak into a family celebration.  I'm sure you could find it on Youtube.  

Yule/Solstice is all about warmth and celebrating the sun to coax his return in the dark winter nights.

 You know Hebrew?!? I've been dying to learn it. It's my "Before 40" goal :)
