In the Netherlands we celebrate the B-day of Saint Nicolas on the 5th of December. And every year he arrives in our country in November to celebrate the preparations of his birthday, like filling shoes of kids with small presents once in a while. Because he doesn't receive gifts on his birthday but gives presents to all kids in our country. A tradition we pass on to every next generations for centuries. With gifts, poems and surprises.
Today he arrived in Holland and my kids placed their shoes in front of the DIY fireplace singing special Saint Nicholas songs. So now it's my turn to take care of the presents :)
Stylecookie developed some inspiring surprises for the 5th of December in association with Flair, a lovely dutch magazine. You can find the descriptions on their great site!
Cute, original and nice surprises to pass through to next generations!
