Festival of St. Nicholas

Website

St. Nicholas enters the hall and is seated in a large (bishop’s?) chair while the priest tells the story of St. Nicholas’ life and deeds. During the story-telling, two youth hold signs saying “YAY!” and “BOO!” When good things happen the “YAY!” sign is held up and everyone cheers; when bad things happen, the “BOO!” sign is held up and everyone boos. After the stories, St. Nicholas hands out small goody bags with chocolate coins and clementines to all the children.
