Saint Nicolais left, Santa Claus is coming.

I have to say that if have been busy with a lot of things the last days, so I didn't have time to write.
But here I am again.

Here in Holland Saint Nicolais left for Spain this sunday. Every child is happy with the gifts and the fact that Saint Nicolais came by there house or school.
In all the stores you can buy Saint Nicolais candy with discount and everything in the store that first was reserved for Saint Nicolais is now filled with Santa Claus things.
Yes, we are going from one child feast to an other. Isn't is great!!!
Yess for the children, I can see there wishlist already.
No they didn't get anything for Saint Nicolais, it's more fun if they really believe in it. They leave there shoe at the door and sing songs to Saint Nicolais so they really hope he is coming. The children really believe that Saint Nicolais can hear them.

There is no singing for Santa Claus, no leaving your shoe at the door, so this is so differant.
Don't get me wrong, I love chrismas. The trea, the lights, the jolly good feeling.
I have to admit, I miss the fact that the children are small and believe in Saint Nicolais.

  1. I believed in Santa Claus for a long time. My parents and older brothers kept the character alive and I was probably the last in school to find out the truth. Thank you to them, C'mas was always magical for me becos of that.
