I know most of you probably don't celebrate it, but happy Nikolaus! And to those who do, I hope you found something nice in your boots this morning. 🎅🏻
@A pet named Steve, I had a German art teacher my senior year of high school and she let us experience Nikolaus. It was fun.
@A pet named Steve, in wisconsin is called st. Nick's day
@A pet named Steve, not to start a political arguement, but that's what it should be like in the US.
Not the stupid "inclusive" "Happy Holidays!" bs. Just everyone wishing everyone else a happy "whatever holiday they celebrate". It's much more meaningful, imo
@A pet named Steve, scorpions probably don't count as something nice right?
@A pet named Steve, I used to do this and Christmas growing up! Man, it was like the tooth fairy for your boots! Haha. Das boot! Nikolaus originated in Germany, yes?
@M0RT0S, that totally depends on your view on life and death.
@merimar3, hmm I don't know, the Nikolaus was born in today's Turkey. It might have originated in Russia or Yugoslavia. We even have an ancient Yugoslavian painting of the Nikolaus hanging on the wall. Say, did you have an advent calendar? Where you get a small gift all 24 days up to Christmas? That's so much fun! Just really difficult to resist opening all calendar doors at once to get all your gifts, especially since my calendar this year consists of American sweets
@A pet named Steve, I'll have to check his Wikipedia page. Yes I have had an Advent calendar every year of my life practically. Mine have never had chocolates though. Just Bible verses. German chocolate is being outshined by American chocolate?! I'm amazed by that. Lindor is really good and I think they're American.
@merimar3, Lindt / Lindor ist Swiss haha, and let me tell you one thing, nothing beats Swiss chocolate. Belgian chocolate is a close second. But yeah, my Stepmom got me American sweets and I eat one everyday. My lil bro has a Lego calendar, and my other lil brother an Yps calendar with Gimmicks. (Now I'm hungry for chocolate, luckily I still have some from my boots this morning)
That's like all of my coworkers! Government employment sucks.
Whenever I watch Olympic trampoline or a floor routine and think “oooo... they jumped... ooo.. they jumped again” ... but then I think “could my fat ass do anything even resembling that?... if I lost 100lbs would that be enough to let me... no? Huh, ok I guess it’s impressive”
So Santa. One night. (Forgetting the assumed managerial position over elves and all children). Could I do it? No. Huh, impressive.
