Saint Nicholas Day Celebration


Traditions from Luxembourg are brought to Rollingstone Community School each year by the members of Saint Nicholas Society Volunteer Group. They share the ways Luxembourgers celebrate Saint Nicholas because many of the original Rollingstone settlers came from Luxembourg. Children learn how children in Luxembourg leave their slippers out each night for a week before St Nicholas Day to be filled with sweets and toys. Families also leave food for the saint who comes on a donkey. Children receive treat bags, filled with fruit and other treats.
