St. Nicholas Day comes to Montgomery County

ST. JOHNSVILLE -- Santa Claus and his many incarnations is one of the great historic figures of our world. One example is St. Nicholas, whose tradition was brought to America by the early Dutch and Palatine German settlers, many of whose descendants live in this area.

The annual St. Nicholas Day celebration is set for this Sunday from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the Fort Klock Historic Restoration, located two miles east of this Montgomery County community.

The free prelude to the holiday season is aimed at children and their families. There will be spiced cider, hot chocolate, cookies and gingerbread.

St. Nicholas will have a wooden ornament for each child, plus a storyteller, colonial music, and militia drill will be offered for visitors' enjoyment.
