Dear International Students,
We would like to introduce You Mikulás, the Hungarian Santa Claus.
Mikulás is the Hungarian Santa Claus, who comes to Hungarian children on 6th of December in the morning. He looks very much like the American Santa Claus. He comes from the North Pole on his sledge dragged by reindeers. There are always 2 little devils (dressed in black with red horns and tail) with him to punish bad children. On 5th in the evening little children clean their boots and put them on the window for the night as Santa Claus in Hungary puts his presents into boots, but only into clean ones. Children are waiting with excitement the night before, and probably they can even hardly sleep. But bad children get not only presents but also birch (a bunch of branches painted gold to swish them with if they were bad – children are so afraid of getting it!).
So what did you find in Your boots in the morning? 🙂
