St. Nicholas Boots?

In our family, we practice the tradition of setting out shoes on the evening of December 5th, in the hope that St. Nicholas will come overnight and leave candy or little goodies in the shoes. Directly after dinner tonight, the kids leapt up to put out their shoes. I was busy with a few other items and didn't oversee the process. Just a few moments ago I came upon this sight. Those are not shoes; those are boots. These are children hoping for the mother lode. We're still working on saintly moderation...
