Saint Nicholas

Tomorrow is Saint Nicholas! It's interesting how this festivity differs around the world...

I remember when I was a kid that my mum used to hide on my balcony and make loud noises on the shutters. So I got scared and thought the "devil" came after me because I wasn't good :) It's actually a tradition here to polish your boots or put a plate on your window before you go to sleep on the 5th and the next morning receive carbon if you weren't good or sweets and fruit if you were. ...

Saint Nicholas is usually accompanied by the devil and the angels.



How do you celebrate Saint Nicholas?
