St Nicholas’ coming to Europe Center

As every year, Sunday afternoon the children in the Europe Center had a visit by St Nicholas.

This non-Buddhist tradition is celebrated at the Europe Center each year because the kids simply love it! The older ones already know what is going on, the younger ones obviously still responded in a reserved manner to the white-bearded old man with the red hat. But after bravely singing some songs, swearing to have been good kids over the year and being diligent in school, all of them, after getting a present, were convinced that St Nicholas must be a good man. The Irish sounds of harp and pipe again touched our hearts – thank you Reidun and Barry!
