6 days left until Christmas! In Holland, Christmas is actually celebrated on the 5th of December. Instead of a stocking, children leave their shoe to fill, with some water or carrots for the horse St. Nicolas rides. Usually, they will also sing a song asking him for a present. The next morning, if they are lucky, something will be left in their shoe!
Enjoy another Holiday fun fact, as we continue to count down the days until Christmas! The elves we know today belong to Santa and help make and get all the presents ready for delivery on Christmas. But do you Ever wonder where the idea of elves came from?
