Jolly Old St Nicholas

Today is our Nicky’s Saint’s Day and in the spirit of the day I thought I’d share this British Pathé newsreel.

They sure know how to have fun those Austrians!!!!

This is dedicated to my friend Dr Spo, who’s knowledge of Krampus and other fine fellows of Christmastide is encyclopedic.

December 6th is Put On Your Own Shoes Day – perhaps not a bad idea if you live in a household where people put out their shoes to be filled with sweetmeats and treats from St Nicholas.
