St Nicholas Party
Who was Saint Nicholas, really? Nicholas was born during the third century A.D., and became Bishop of Myra (in what is now Turkey) at a young age. There are many stories about his generosity, his love for children, and his care for those in need, and today he may be the patron saint of more causes than any other saint, in particular children, sailors, and prisoners. St. Nicholas Day is observed on December 6 on the church calendar, and that means…it’s time for a party!
We will have a St. Nicholas party Saturday, December 6, from 4:00.until 7:00. This is a long-time tradition at St George’s, and is always a wonderful time of fun, food, and fellowship for all ages, not just kids. We will make St. Nicholas Christmas tree ornaments, finish decorating the Christmas tree that our youth cut, perhaps have a surprise visit by Bishop Nicholas himself, and sing Christmas carols while munching cookies and sipping hot chocolate.
The party is free, however, in the spirit of St. Nicholas, we ask that you bring a warm winter hat, scarf, or gloves to be given through St. George’s outreach to children or adolescents who need them.
We will order pizza but will need some help with food (a tray of macaroni & cheese, a bag of salad greens or salad dressing, more Christmas cookies) and drinks (juice, cider, or hot-chocolate), and set-up and clean-up. If you can help with any of these or have questions, please contact Tim Dangel.
