Adventskalender, December 6 – Nikolaus

I hope you put your well-polished boots by your door last night so that this morning you awoke to find them gloriously filled with walnuts, chocolate, oranges, and maybe some nice presents. No? But where should St. Nikolaus put his gifts if you don’t leave your boots out?

If you have not even heard of St Nikolaus, then you’re missing out on the little pre-Christmas Christmas. I’ve been in the States for over 10 years now and I hold on to this tradition even when I’m the only one in the house and so have to get up early to put things in my own boots and then happily unwrap all those “surprises.” Because it’s fun and it’s special and I grew up with it.

The Advent calendar recognizes this day by giving me an angel. Or possibly, a child dressed as an angel, since the wings are snap-on. Either way, now the cats have someone to pour the milk for them Hurrah!
