And here is our cast taking a bow. Before the play began, all of the children left their shoes outside, and at the end of the play they retrieved them to find gold coins waiting inside them. We finished the evening with a fasting potluck. This year, we are performing stories about St. Nicholas as the patron of sailors, hope to get someone to take photos for me this year! Last year's script was a combination of several from my old parish which has been doing a St. Nicholas play for over 20 years, so I cannot give credit to the person who originally created them* (edited: see note below). I made a few changes, and the script uses readings from Demi's The Legend of St. Nicholas as well. What does your parish do to celebrate St. Nicholas?
