Treats to celebrate the Holy Bishop of Myra.
Frutta candita, Italian sugarplums to celebrate the sweetness of Nicholas’ generosity.
These papassini, traditional Sardinian Christmas cookies, reminded me of the Bishop’s miter and the golden sultanas embedded in them were reminiscent of the gold pieces Nicholas gave to the three poor girls in the legend.
Clementines are a traditional symbol of generosity and have been left in shoes by St. Nicholas for centuries!
I hope those of you who are honoring St. Nicholas today enjoy your celebration! I hope to have more photographs for you at the end of the day.
