It was so thoughtful of my host family to include me in this tradition. When Anna Sophie opened the front door and saw the little bags, you could see the awe and belief in her eyes. Of course, when an actual St. Nikolaus visited her playgroup later in the week, the expression was more akin to terror. Ah well.
