A Mikulosh Snippet

December 5, 2008

6:00 p.m. Cool enough outside…open the doors, turn on the fan and bake some cookies for Santa.

7:30 p.m. Sample cookies—yum! Leave a few for Santa, carrot balls (a unique SA spin on mini-carrots) for the reindeer and a glass of milk.

7:45 p.m. Read, “Are you for Real Santa?” and talk about St. Nick.

8:00 p.m. Kids to bed without as much as a peep!

8:30 p.m. Due to “Mr. Claus” being laid up in Zimbabwe, “Mrs. Claus” will adhere to the stocking filling.

6:45 a.m. “Mom, please can we open our stockings? Please, mom…, are you awake?”

6:55 a.m. Elated faces depicting another successful Franzenfam European, Christmas tradition (aka Mikulosh)!

7:00 a.m. “Mrs. Claus” heads back to bed!

what a fabulous tradition! i love sharing the story, "A place for Santa" with our kids on St. Nicholas' day. our kneeling santa is one of our favorite decorations. even santa knows to adore him.

Never heard of Mikulash, but it sounds fun EXCEPT for the carrot balls. Ew.
