Traditionally the 6th of December is Nikolaus in Germany. Children are supposed to polish their boots on the night of the 5th and put one out, then the morning they’ll find treats like nuts, oranges and maybe small toys.
Ok so even when I was little I didn’t have a boot to polish. It was more like the stocking you use at Christmas but I do still kinda miss this. Just like I miss Advent Tee.
I thought I’d do my own little take by hosting a giveaway of one of the best books I’ve read this year.
