The Morrison County Historical Society invites the public to celebrate St. Nicholas Day at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum on Saturday, December 6, 2014.

St. Nicholas Day is a traditional holiday celebrated around the world in early December. It honors the patron saint of children, who is known as Santa Claus in the United States. St. Nick is reputed to bring gifts and goodies to fill stockings and shoes for good boys and girls.

During its St. Nicholas Day event, the Weyerhaeuser Museum will be decorated for the holiday season. There will be a special display of shoes loaned by community members to augment the museum’s current exhibit, “Saunter: On the Path of the Pedestrian.” Story time will occur during the event, with selections to be read from St. Nicholas Magazine. Refreshments will also be served.

People of all ages are welcome to join MCHS for St. Nicholas Day. This event is free and open to the public and runs from noon to 4:00 p.m. For more information, call 320-632-4007.
