Christmas Traditions

Christmas traditions are a funny old thing, aren't they? Some are passed down through families, from generation to generation, and some just naturally evolve without you even realising.

When I was growing up in Germany, St. Nicholas Day on December 6th was a bigggg deal as we would receive sweets in our shoes for being good {unless we had been naughty and Knecht Ruprecht left 'alternative' gifts!}. I don't recall mince pies featuring heavily in my childhood festive memories, but the mere waft of Stollen, Lebkuchen or Pfeffernüsse gives me alllll the nostalgic feels still to this day.
