Holiday Ho Ho Hop






Today is a special morning in Germany. Nikolaustag!
Children put their shoes out by the door the night of December 5th in the hopes St. Nick will fill them with candy and chocolate coins. I love Nikolaustag and since I am German we celebrate it each year and of course my kids put out their shoes last night:


We also left out some carrots for the donkey that Nikolaus rides on and it seems my kids were good this year!




Bento Bloggers and Friends is having a Ho Ho Hop today and  I made a special Nikolaus Lunch in honor of Nikolaustag!


We packed our yubo with a ham and cucumber boot sandwich filled with some small chocolates, Christmas tree shaped pretzels, yogurt with dye free chocolate sprinkles to make a Christmas Tree and some penguin crackers with a Nikolaus decoration.



And now hop over to my friend Keeley to see what she packed for today's Ho Ho Hop!

  15. So perfect! My whatever multi great grandfather came over from Germany and my mom would tell me how HER grandmother still spoke (and swore) in German when she got flustered and tried to carry on traditions like this. Maybe next year I'll start to teach John some of his different family history traditions!
