Do you know what yesterday was? Why, December 6, St. Nikolaus Day, of course!
St. Nikolaus was actually a saint from the 4th century, noted for a miracle involving the multiplication of some bags of wheat. I gathered this from a book about him at Maggie's preschool, so take it with a grain of salt. He's actually buried in Bari, Italy, too, so that's interesting.
Anyway, he visited Nina at her school and Maggie at her school yesterday. How fun! He gave each of them a bag filled with goodies (a mix of candy and healthy treats like apples and clementines). Then when they got home, they discovered that he'd left them each a present at the house!
Maggie got a playmobil set:
And Nina got a new set of pajamas for her baby doll:
Fortunately, we didn't see Krampus anywhere. Whew! He sounded kind of scary!
