Ho, ho, ho today is Nikolaus!

From the legends of Nikolaus of Myra and Nikolaus of Sion, the figure of St. Nikolaus of Myra was formed. According to the story, he performed numerous miracles and helped poor children. Ultimately, this gave rise to the myth of the merciful helper and protector, who unrecognized in the night gives children gifts.

 

The well-known appearance of Nikolaus goes back to the German emigrant Thomas Nast. He drew St. Nikolaus, alias Santa Claus, in the USA as early as 1862 with a white beard, red coat and fur-trimmed cap.

 

Unfortunately, we cannot confirm whether Thomas Nast was right in his description, because no one at ipf electronic saw Nikolaus leave a sweet surprise for each employee either. But he certainly gave us great pleasure with it!
