Advent & Nativity
The story of the REAL Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, and the beginning of our tradition of stuffing stockings!

A beautiful hard-bound story of the authentic Santa Claus, St. Nicholas. A must-have for his feast day on Dec. 6th!

This ornament kit includes 7 pre-printed shrink-plastic sheets and instructions to create seven easy-to-make (for all ages) ornaments including:

The Theotokos With Child * St. Nicholas of Myra * Nativity of Our Lord * Christ is Born! Glorify Him! * Veneration of the Magi * Flight into Egypt * The Holy Archangel Gabriel.

Finished product shrinks considerably and has a stained-glass look.  A fun craft & a lovely gift for children to make for loved ones or as a church school project.

Also a nice fundraiser for SOYO groups to sell the finished icons for stocking stuffers and gifts.

Christmas in coloring icons is a perfect gift for all ages! A beautiful way to focus on the real meaning of Christmas.

Nativity of Christ mini coloring book. Great stocking stuffer for under a buck!

Perfect stocking stuffer for under a dollar! Sweet Christmas-theme for little ones.

More Christmas fun with this little dot-to-dot coloring book!

The author's rich, engaging iconographic illustrations add to the beauty of the Christmas story, from the journey to Bethlehem to the flight to Egypt.

Both Scripture and Tradition tell of the gold, frankincense and myrrh. This story follows the gifts from the Magi's hands to a Holy Monastery on Mt. Athos.

An important part of any St. Nicholas Day celebration, gold foil chocolate coins are traditionally included in the St. Nicholas stocking or shoe. They commemorate Saint Nicholas saving three poor peasant daughters from a life of sin and despair, when he threw gold coins in their window for their marriage dowries. The coins are traditionally believed to have landed into their stockings/shoes close to the fireplace--why we hang Christmas stockings on the fireplace today.

St. Nicholas chocolate coins are a lovely treat to give to our children, parish family, godchildren, neighbors, teachers, friends, co-workers, even to those serving in our military overseas.  Great for stocking stuffers, gift baskets, and care packages.

Available in milk, dark (non-dairy), & mint chocolate, our chocolate coin packages come in three sizes: 3 pack, 12 pack, and 24 pack. 

We will also be offering discounted St. Nicholas coins in bulk (not packaged) on our website this year.  Click here for bulk coins.
