On 6th of December, here, like in some other European countries, is celebrated St. Nikolaus. Unlike his “counterpart”, Santa Claus, he existed for real. He was a bishop in the old Byzantine Empire. On the evening of 5th of December each year, children, and not only, clean their boots and make them ready for St. Nikolaus to come and bring them presents (not big, mostly consisting of sweets). Presents which he places in the said boots. Of course, on the 25th of December we celebrate Christmas too, but that’s a different story.
What does this have to do with my picture? These are the presents I gave for St. Nikolaus. Before, of course, I had to wrap them nicely, and this is the result. It was fun, and did it with stuff I found in the house.
