 Luxembourg

There is no Santa Claus in Luxembourg at Christmas time, however "St. Nicolas Day" is celebrated on December 6th. On evenings - one week - before this date, children put their slippers in front of their bed-room doors expecting them to be filled with a small gift by St. Nicolas during the night. On the eve of December 6th, children place a plate on the kitchen or dining-room table which St. Nicolas fills with sweets and gifts overnight. St. Nicolas also pays visits to children in schools. worldholidaytraditions.com
