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,
or St Nicholas Day
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
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!
