Fischer & Wieser’s St. Nicholas’ Day Tradition
St. Nicholas’ Day is a beloved German holiday that celebrates St. Nicholas, the bringer of gifts. In the Fischer & Wieser family, this tradition has been a cherished part of our lives for as long as we can remember. Mark Wieser, having grown up in a household where his parents had immigrated from Germany, carried the tradition into our home. Each December 6th, just like we did when we were young, we’d excitedly rush to our stockings to see what St. Nick had brought us that year. The anticipation of finding candies and little toys from our local five and dime store made this day even more special.
Now, let’s explore five holiday gourmet food gifts that can make your holiday celebrations as joyful as our St. Nicholas’ Day tradition for every budget!
