no time for Christmas. Grrrrr.
But in the meantime all is well again, we're back to normal and slowly but for sure we can dedicate ourselves to the happy anticipation of Christmas!
On the 6th of december my son recived his first "Nikolo"-bag. Nikolo is our version of Father Christmas/Santa Claus. He originates from the same legend, the same person, but in our tradition he only brings one small present accompanied by nuts, oranges and sweets on the 6th of december. Traditionally the bag was put in a shoe- the custom goes back to the same origin as the anglo-american stockings.
On Christmas Eve the "christmas child" (baby Jesus) brings the presents (and tree) in Austria!
But Raymond does not seem to be in proper Christmas mood yet - he just hates this suit!
