Reflection on the arrival of the first good man – St. Nicholas

Today, the first good man to visit our children – St. Nicholas. In doing so, I think about how wasteful we are, how we show up expensive gifts, but also how peaceful, serene, family-friendly and happy December can be. In my childhood years, only a very humble Saint Nicholas came in December, who, at most, put some oranges, a bag of sweets, dried figs – and that was that. We were raised modestly and were able to look forward to small gifts. Nowadays, we instill in children or even impose, the thought that in December nothing is impossible, that by pressing parents (and grandparents) they can fulfill all their wishes. It seems that there are really no reasonable boundaries in families. In fact, the circus begins as early as November, when the shops shine in the glow of plastic toys and everything that makes us feel the arrival of Christmas and New Year. We often say that the anticipation and preparation for the holidays are much more exciting than the holidays themselves.
