St. Nicholas Visit

St. Nicholas visits the worship service nearest his feast day, December 6. At the close of the service, people bring gifts for needy families to the alter and receive a gold chocolate coin from St. Nicholas in return. The coin has a piece of straw glued to the top as a reminder that "no matter how blessed we are, there are those out there that are still needy."
