În noaptea de 5 spre 6 decembrie vine Moş Nicolae.

Seara copii aşează la uşi sau la ferestre o pereche de ghete curăţate. În timpul nopţii Moş Nicolae aduce cadouri copiilor: fructe, dulciuri sau jucării. Conform tradiţiei, copiii care nu sunt cuminţi primesc şi o nuieluşă. De aceea, în unele regiuni, copiii lasă moşului un pic din mâncarea lor preferată ca să-i ierte.

În dimineaţa următoare copiii se bucură de cadourile primite.

Pe 6 decembrie sunt sărbătoriţi cei cu numele de Nicolae şi alte nume asemănătoare.

Saint Nicholas


During the night of 5th to 6th of December comes Saint Nicholas.

In the evening children place at the windows or doors a pair of clean boots. During the night Saint Nicholas brings presents to children: fruits, candies or toys. According to the tradition, the children not behaving well receive also a small twig. That is why, in some regions, the children leave for Saint Nicholas some of their favorite food, so that he will forgive them.

In the next morning, the children enjoy their presents.

On the 6th of December are celebrated all those called Nicolae and those with similar names.
