Holiday Door Tradition in Germany Nikolaustag

I was browsing around pinterest and kept seeing boots with treats tucked inside placed outside of front doors. Yes, I was busy admiring and collecting doors again...

Since I am a curious person I clicked on a few and found that Germany has a special day for the holiday called,

holiday door traditionNikolaustag 
or St Nicholas Day

In Germany on December 6th, children put their shoe or boot outside the front door. The tradition says that St. Nicholas fills the shoes of all good kids with delicious treats and places twigs in the shoes of all naughty children...

Unfortunately I didn't find this until after December 6th, but you could create a new tradition in 2016 for your family and their shoes at the front door!
