Happy St. Nicholas Day. These two little beasts were kind enough to pose for a picture in the Altstadt yesterday evening (their father was nearby, that may have explained the courteousness.) The city is full of winter tourists, mainly Italians, and the Glühwein stands in the Adventsmarkt are doing brisk business. Yesterday belonged to Krampus; today St. Nicholas comes and brings presents to good little children.
I happen to have a work-related meeting today to discuss the near future, which is also a kind of visit from Nikolaus. At least, one hopes that one will get presents and not the switch!
UPDATE: Nice ‘presents’. Not everything I wanted but enough. It’s good!
