St Nicolas Day

Last Friday was the annual St Nicolas Day celebration at St Nicolas School in Abingdon. The day included a church service and special lunch at school and a visit from St Nicolas himself, who arrived in a horse-drawn carriage attended by children dressed as "peters" - St Nic's mischievous helpers. (Thanks for sending the picture. More pictures from the same event in 2007 are on the School's Website).

Another custom happening here tonight in Abingdon will be the Mummers. A full schedule is here.
