St. Nikolaus Day


Are you familiar with old Saint Nikolaus? He plays a major role for German kids within the Advent time. On the evening of December 5, German kids clean their shoes and put them in front of the door. Sounds weird, we Germans really do that. Over night, Nikolaus comes and fills the shoes with either candies and small gifts for the kids who have been good or with coals for the roughnecks.

Since Nikolaus day is on December 6, we're going to celebrate this special day in German culture at the market, too. Bring your kids to our boot filling event as St. Nikolaus will fill children’s boots with sweet treats at no cost sponsored by Power Crunch. Every boot that is dropped off at the information booth on December 6 between 11:00 AM and 3:30 PM will be filled with special treats and returned to the child at 4:15 PM by St. Nikolaus himself. Afterwards, children will have the opportunity to talk to St. Nikolaus and take pictures with him.

We are looking forward to see you there!
