We have a tradition of celebrating St. Nicholas on the night of December 5 till the morning of December 6th. Well, usually kids will receive presents like chocolates, toys etc. If they are naughty they receive a decorated stick... Guess what St. Nicholas brought for my cats...3 sticks . They were not naughty but they will enjoy playing with the sticks much more than they would enjoy the chocolate. I kept the chocolate for myself.

So you celebrate the 5th of December like the Dutch. We celebrate the 6th, like in many other European countries.

Yeah, here it is on the night of the 5th. I guess it doesn't matter though.

This must be particular to your country. We do not do this here in Canada. Happy St Nicholas Day.

@tzwrites I think we can still go back to be a child in doing children activities.

How fun! We don't celebrate St. Nicholas day, but I would have loved some chocolates and Daisy would have gotten her favourite chewy. I am sure your cats appreciated those sticks. Happy St. Nicholas day to you!

The cats are asking themselves if you wanted to make fun of them? I am pleased that St Nicholas did not forgot your chocolates Nice tradition.

Haha, the cats already destroyed their little sticks so they are naughty after all and deserved them.

I remember going to a St Nicholas parade here in New Zealand many years ago. Three sticks for three naughty cats
