OT: POTD: Happy St. Nikolaus day
This might be a good morning or a bad one ...depending on what you celebrate :-)
But I know you've all been good so I hope that this day brings you some sweet surprises.
This is my 2nd St. Nikolaus day I am celebrating ....ALONE :-( Maddy is not here.....here at the GW with my friends.
In Germany St. Nikolaus comes during the night of the 5th and fills your boots that the children put in front of their doors. Of course ONLY if they have been good. If not...well then...oh boy you get the RUTE....small branches tied together to SPANK you with.
I would NEVER give my kids the Rute even if they were bad. I tell you, as a little kid when someone puts SO MUCH fear into you saying that Nikolaus comes and brings the Rute because you were bad...and let me tell you...I WAS NO ANGEL ha ha ha ha....anyways...I vividly remember one time when St. Nikolaus came to the Daycare Center and I screamed bloody murder. I just KNEW I would get the Rute. Which I really did!!!
So, what is it that you want St. Nikolaus to put in your boots?
