Day 55 – St. Nicholas day


Day 55 - St. Nicholas day

Last night St. Nicholas passed through every home and left some presents in the nicely arranged boots for kids of all ages. It’s a very nice celebration and tradition, that reminds me of childhood when my mother used to wake me up in the middle of the night because St. Nicholas arrived.

I was so happy when I saw oranges and cookies or sweets in my boots.  I didn’t need big, fancy presents, a Kinder egg or a chocolate was perfect, it was the feeling and the bond with my parents that was the special thing about this tradition. I never received a wooden stick, which naughty kids receive :).
