Most years, I completely forget about this weird tradition till it's over: in our family, after one disaster with St Nick, the annual celebration consisted of us kids being totally unaware of it till there was a knock on the door. Mom would be busy making supper, so we were sent to open the door.
"Muma, there's nobody there..."
"Are you sure? Look again ☺!"
So don't forget--St Nick is Thursday, December 6th. The candy should show up the night before, ok?
