Day 341 : Dowry Gold
Today is the feast day of St Nicholas. There are so many Christmas traditions that stem from his story that I felt I had to represent something. So, I have chosen the story of the dowry - or gold coins. There are few different stories (He may have given three coins or three bags of coins), but essentially St. Nicholas's gift-giving is at the heart of the it.
