During my childhood, I put one of my winter boots outside our front door on the 5th of December so that Nikolaus was able to leave some things for me in it overnight. It was always fun to find and discover in the morning of the actual Nikolaus day what he had brought during the night. Usually, my boot was filled with some nuts, fruits you mostly get during the wintertime (an orange, a clementine) a bit chocolate, maybe a set of cards, a little book or whatever I used to have on my Christmas Wishlist. It wasn´t much and I am sure my family did it only for the pure fun of finding something in a boot. And of course, when I was around six, I knew that my mother was acting “on behalf” of Nikolaus and put all the things into my winter boot. 

Today we have the 6th of December and I have my chocolate Nikolaus standing on my desk. The times where someone filled one of my boots is over and doing it all by myself isn´t half the fun it used to be when I was a kid.

I don´t know if you are celebrating the Nikolaus day but if you do, I wish you a wonderful day and maybe the one or the other sweet thing that comes across your way. 

Happy Nikolaus Day
