Hotel Conturines in Alta Badia – Deluxe Holidays in the Dolomites
Every year again ... we are not only celebrating Christmas!
In fact, at the beginning of December, Saint Nicholas visits us in South Tyrol and distributes presents like gingerbread, nuts and mandarins to the good children in the town.
This tradition is based on the story of St. Nicholas of Myra.
The benevolent bishop lived and cared for the poor and sick in the country and secretly gave them food and other gifts. This is how the traditional custom of St. Nicholaus came about.
A custom that makes not only children's heart beat faster...
