(WFRV) — St. Nicholas’ Day is on December 6 and children across the nation will go to bed on December 5 in anticipation of waking up to stuffed stockings.

According to, St. Nicholas’ Day is a day honoring the legendary St. Nicholas, who earned a reputation for gift-giving by putting coins in the shoes of others.

Today, many most often replicate this by putting candy, toys, and fruit in stockings, socks, shoes, or bags for children.

We want to hear from you on Facebook and Twitter: what did you receive in your stocking as a child or what are you putting in your child’s stocking?
