Christmas Time with Nicolaus Day – Weihnachtszeit Nikolaus Stiefel
Today is December 06 and Christmas time with Nicolaus day has arrived.
In Germany and in many Europa cities kids have woken up to boots with gifts and sweets or at worst a twig with sweets hanging on there.
All who know me, know that I am German and that I still celebrate German events and as well Nicolaus.
That what we do when Nikolaus day arrives. On the eve of Dec. 05 all kids clean their shoes and boots and put them outside their door. Somewhere at night time Nikolaus arrives and put gift and sweets in the shoes. But sometimes also, twigs are in someone shoes.
How does Nicolaus decide who gets gifts or sweets? If you have been a good kid you will receive little gift and sweets in your shoes, but if you have been a naughty kid then you will receive a twig with a few sweets.
Dec.06 is celebrated with your kids all day long. Children play games, bake cookies and do crafts for Christmas. It is just a fun day to be with your kids and await the big day when Santa Claus arrives.
Did you look into your shoes this morning? Tell us what you have found, if you were naughty or nice.
Happy Nikolaus to all of you!
