Mounting Joy: St. Nicholas Day Traditions Illuminate The Mount With Festive Magic

On December 6th, a touch of festive magic enveloped the Mount as students eagerly embraced the heartwarming tradition of St. Nicholas Day. This cherished Dutch holiday, often hailed as "the Dutch Christmas," took on a special resonance within the school's community.


In the spirit of St. Nicholas, Mount students participated in a delightful ritual during homeroom. Each student placed a single shoe along the hallway wall, creating a colorful and joyful display. This act of anticipation set the stage for an enchanting surprise orchestrated by the Student Council.

 

Guided by the spirit of giving, the Student Council members, St. Nicholas's devoted helpers, wove through the hallways, armed with candy canes and holiday cheer. With meticulous care, they filled the waiting shoes with sweet treats, creating a tapestry of goodwill and joy that brightened the day for each student.

 

As the homeroom bell chimed, students excitedly retrieved their shoes, discovering the delightful surprises left by St. Nicholas's helpers. The air was filled with laughter and shared moments of happiness, creating lasting memories and fostering a sense of community spirit.

 

This heartening celebration is just one example of the many special holiday traditions that define life at the Mount. As we come together to honor St. Nicholas, the spirit of generosity and camaraderie unites us, making this festive season a truly magical time for all Mount students.
