What's the story of Saint Nicholas ?
On December 6th of each year, Saint Nicolas pays a visit to all the children in Eastern and Northern France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and many parts of eastern Europe.
Saint Nicholas arrives on his donkey or horse with his companion Black Peter.
In Dutch, his companion is called Zwarte Piet and in French Père Fouettard.
Saint Nicholas gives candy to the good kids while his companion kidnaps the kids who haven’t been so good.
Although the traditions change from region to region, the day is a very important day for kids. Some kids leave their shoes out the night before to have them filled with coins or candy.
In another variation, kids leave a carrot and turnip for the donkey; Saint Nicholas leaves orange and a sweet in return like chocolates !!!
