In Switzerland, Samichlaus (St. Nicholas) is a big deal and he comes visiting all boys and girls on December 6th and if you are lucky you are gifted a Samichlaus sackli. These little hessian bag come filled with mandarins, raw peanuts, chocolate sweets as well as a decorated gingerbread. As a little nod to this tradition, I created a display featuring some of the key elements and are displaying it in my giant teak bowl from Depot in my living room. It looks great and will keep till December 6th – well possibly not the chocolate!
