Is It Christmas Yet?

For those living on the Continent, yesterday was Sinterklaas, or the Feast Day of St. Nicholas. In some countries it is traditional for children to leave their shoes out so Sinterklaas can put sweets in them… or twigs if they misbehave! (I have it on good authority that some children like to return the favour by leaving their Christmas lists in their parent’s shoes).

It’s at times like this, when the preparation for the Big Day is in full swing for children to get impatient and ask if it’s Christmas. If you find that happening to you, show them this website:

Have a check on Christmas Day too.

Thanks to CL for suggesting.
