Default Feast of Saint Nicholas

A few days ago at work we were talking about the Feast of St. Nicholas, celebrated on December 5th or 6th, depending on the country. My parents came to the USA from Germany, and when I was a young child, we would put our shoes outside our bedroom doors the night before, and wake up to a few candies or other treats in our shoes!

That was about the extent of the celebration, and as I got older the habit sort of fell away. I never got around to doing the same for my children when they were growing up, which I regret. It's not really noted here in the US.

Does anyone here celebrate the holiday? If so, what are the traditions you follow?
