In Europe, December 6th is St. Nikolaus Day. On the night of Dec. 5th, people put their shined boots out and if they have been good, St. Nikolaus will fill the boots with treats.
I suppose that Markus has been good this year, and since he is Austrian and Swiss, St. Nikolaus decided to stop by our house last night and fill his boots with some of his favorite treats!
He even put some treats in Analise's shoes! I thought he forgot about me, however when I got home from running errands today, I had a treat in my shoes too (a gift certificate for a pedicure)!
