In Switzerland, we celebrate St Nicolas Day on 6th December. This was in 1974. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 'Samichlaus' and 'Schmutzli' would come in the evening. They have a big golden book with notes about the good and the bad things we children did during the past year. We were expected to recite a poem or to play a little tune on the recorder and then we would receive a bag full of goodies: nuts, mandarines, a few chocolates and lollies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I remember how much respect we had for these two. When I look at them, it must have been quite a scary business. I'm not sure from which age we knew that they were just dressing up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your traditions at St Nicolas - if you do celebrate it at all? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #advent #christmastraditions #samichlaus #throwback #memories #scan #scanned #digitalization #oldfamilyphotos #vintagephotos #scanner #oldphotograph #oldphotographs #backupplan #saveyourphotos #digitize #digitizing #documentaryfamilyphotography #familyhistory #keepsafe #leavealegacy #photocollection⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #photosinorder #eltham #saveyourphotos #professionalorganiser #photoorganizer #melbourneaustralia

There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you. . . . . . . . . #vintage #vintagestyle #vintagephotography #vintagephotos #flim #flimphotography #flimpicture #beach #lanikai #oahu #hawaii #oahu #oahumodel #modeling #modelagency #hawaiimodernism #bikinigirls #bikini
