Saint Nicholas day in Romania


Saint Nicholas arrives in Romania on the 6th of December, every year, bringing   the winter holidays, the Christmas and the New Year.

On the evening of the 5th of December everybody polish their boots and line them close to the entrance, expecting to be filled with presents.  Saint Nicholas usually brings sweets, fruits and nuts as presents, but also a scary stick for spoiled children.

Saint Nicholas takes care of each member of the family.


In Romania is the second winter celebration after Saint Andrew day, on 30th of November.
