December 6th is a special day for children in Germany. In celebration of St. Nikolaus Day, children receive a few small presents in the morning. They usually find these in their boots if they put them in front of their door the night before.
We're bringing a piece of the German tradition to Vancouver with a visit from Santa Claus! Santa will be taking a break from his busy schedule and will be at the Vancouver Christmas Market from 5pm until 8pm.
