To All the Men of Duncan,

Happy Saint Nick's Day!  Children around the world has been celebrating this special day throughout the centuries: In Germany and Poland, boys would dress as bishops begging alms for the poor; in Ukraine, children wait for St. Nicholas to come and to put a present under their pillows provided that the children were good during the year; and in the United States, one custom associated with Saint Nicholas Day is children leaving their shoes in the foyer on Saint Nicholas Eve in hope that Saint Nicholas will place some coins on the soles, for them to awake to. Sounds a lot like Santa Claus isn't it? Well that's because Dutch settlers in the USA took the old stories of St. Nicholas with them and Kris Kringle became 'Sinterklaas' or as we now say 'Santa Claus'!  With that, here's what's going on this week!
