This is an amazing post. Thank you so much.

It looks like it's a dead link to the St. Nicholas Unit Study. This should work.


God Bless.


Jenn, Thank you so much for this post. I remember you mentioning some of your traditions last year, but I failed to print them out or bookmark it and was sorely disappointed with myself. Hurray! One question, the recipe calls for 1 cup butter and one cup lard. Is there a healthier recipe? Merci mille fois!

Beautiful, Jenn, as always!

Marjorie, I don't know of any "healthy" version. As we only eat these around this time of year, we don't worry too much. http://www.catholicculture.org/lit/calendar/day.cfm?date=2006-12-06 Catholic Culture has a variety of recipes that you might want to see if the options are better.


This is so great! I LOVE reading this, as it gets me right in the mood. Brings back so many memories! I love that you share our traditions with everyone!

Christmas Novena

  • Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen
