The Christmas season is here! It’s the first Sunday of Advent today, and I’m mighty excited. I’m totally in the Christmas Spirit here, which is why I’m bringing you this:
Don’t know yet what Spirits of Christmas is all about?

Why a St Nicholas Day Promo Sale?
Legends about St Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, abound in many shapes and forms; but they all involve helping the poor, protecting children and sailors, and spreading the word. Nicholas died on 6 December AD 343 in Myra, and the anniversary of his death became his saintly feast day.
Many say that St Nicholas (St Nick) was the ‘real’ Santa Claus. To this day, his feast day is widely celebrated all over Europe. In Germany, for example, children put out their Wellie boots on the evening of 5 December, recite poems and/or sing songs, and hope that St Nicholas will fill their boots with sweets and a small present.
So I thought I’d honour this tradition by wrapping my festive sale around his feast day. And obviously, the entire Wells family will be putting out their Wellie boots next week in hopes of a nice surprise…
Like St Nick, Santa Claus and all good elfs, I’m going travelling again in December and taking Spirits of Christmas on tour. This is where you can find me over the coming days and weeks:
