    well guys/gals this little old guy was sneaking around my laundry room this early morn about 5am and I caught him trying to dump a load of coal in one of my work boots............

    think my wife and him were trying to work on a little joke ........ hmmmmmm

    anyway the old German tradition is the happy greeting of having a shoe filled with nuts and candies, ( and plenty of monies :lol:) or if you were an old coot a switch on the hind end by Sanct Nikolaus's ~ Knecht Ruprecht. Didn't see him this morn think he was at the neighbors beating the crap out of those little cretins...........hopefully

    in any case have a groovy Happy Klaus day to all

    Uh-Oh, I better check my hunting boots I left in the basement last night!!! Old Mr. Klaus probably left something pretty nasty in them for me this year.

    We have Sinterklaas here in the NL, only it's on december the 5th. But he arrives 3 weeks earlier and during those weeks, childeren are allowed to put their shoes next to the chimney, so it can be filled with candy

    interesting I thought it was on the 6th all over Europe. hopeful no coal in your shoes guys.........I almost got some, but threw it in the fireplace.

    it is nearly forgotten here in the States, everyone is so focused on the jolly red fat man with the monster bag of STUFF
