St Nicholas Day show

Today was the Children's Home's "priredba" (show) for St Nicholas. It was a wonderful show with poems, plays, songs and dances and a lot of our book club kids were involved. We also started practicing a play which we wanted to do with them, but the staff in the home forgot that we had said we would do that for this, so we will now do it in January instead for St Savo (to give them grace it was discussed in September and I didn't mention again to them until 2 weeks ago, so my bad! The kids were slightly disappointed, but in the end it will be good to do it for that "priredba" instead.)

Above is the end performance with all the teachers and kids singing a holiday song. There was a lot of people there, but my favourite part was seeing how excited the children were to see that Tanja, Natasha and I were there too! I love those kids! Many of them go now to Italy for a month to spend time with families there (through an Italian organisation) and so book club is on a hiatus until February...

Is this the same St. Nicholas who became Father Christmas or Santa Clause?

Yip. Because of the different calendar they celebrate it today rather and on the 5th (like we celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December and they celebrate on the 7th of January!)
