Saint Nicholas'day in Nancy
2nd, 3td and 4th December 2016

Saint Nicholas Day is celebrated in France in Alsace, Lorraine and Northern Counties, and in Belgium, Germany, Holland and Austria. He is the protector of the weak and oppressed, as well as the patron saint of lawyers, seamen and school children. René II also named Saint Nicholas Patron Saint of Lorraine, a title which was confirmed by Pope Innocent X in 1657. On the calendar of saints’ days it is usually celebrated on 6 December in commemoration of his death. In fact the festivities, parades, ceremonies, processions and fireworks displays are held during the first week in December whether or not the 6th falls in that week.

In Nancy, St. Nicholas Day is a popular traditional feast day marked by live entertainment that thrills young and old alike. Floats, major parades and fireworks are designed in his honour, with a different theme each year based on the history of Lorraine.
