The St Nicholas Center has a wealth of information, customs, recipes and other ways that Christians both Orthodox and not celebrate this beloved Saint.

Here is the Hymn to St Nicholas as sung in the Carpathian Rusyn tradition:  It is from the  very useful Antiochan Christian Archdiocese website.

There are some great ideas how to celebrate the Feast here: “Ways to Celebrate St Nicholas Day” from the blog OrthodoxMotherhood.
