Kleeschen at the Luxembourg Residence

Every year on 6 December, "Niklosdag" (St. Nicholas’ Day) is celebrated in Luxembourg in honor of Saint Nicolas, patron of the children. During the celebrations of this popular Luxembourg tradition, children throughout the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg eagerly await the arrival of the "Kleeschen" (St. Nicholas) and the gifts he brings. 

Here in the UAE, the Kleeschen visited the children of the Luxembourg community at the Luxembourg Residence, bringing sweets and candies to all the kids who behaved well (which all of course did). Hosted by the Ambassador Elisabeth Cardoso and by the Executive director of the LTIO Loïc Bertoli, the joyful and convivial event was also an opportunity for the Luxembourg community and friends of Luxembourg in the Emirates to gather in a family like atmosphere before the end of year celebrations, sing traditional children songs, and enjoy Luxembourgish delicacies!
