This sign was created some years ago at my request by Brittany Michelle in Portland, OR. It has faded a bit over the years, but the message is still good and it makes its yearly appearance on our door. In short, our family will be happy to treat you (with gold foil covered chocolate coins) on St. Nicholas Day if you come knocking at the door.
To date, I haven't had anyone come back of their own accord...but if they do, I'll be ready to give them gold foil covered chocolate coins. Best bet--get your child to go out and round up his or her friends--they'll be so glad if you do!
Consider, too, praying the Akathist
prayers to Ss. Cyprian & Justina sometime tomorrow. This is a positive way to combat the forces
of darkness that receive so much attention on October 31 each year. If you would like a copy of these prayers
(for personal use, not for copying or for sale), please send me a note and I
will send you the canon of prayers.
