Santa’s bag has a name – Beutolomäus

Did you know that Santa’s bag has a name? Well it’s “Beutolomäus“, or so the children’s TV channel KiKa would have us believe.

In a 13-part series “Beutolomäus kommt zum Weihnachtsmann” they tell the story of how the bag was made and chosen to be the _one_ bag to deliver all the presents on Christmas Eve.

Sarah likes watching it and tomorrow is the last part.

Opening hours – update

Last week I wrote about the new opening hours in Hessen.  Well, I got one detail wrong.  The shops will be allowed to open on Sundays and Bank Holidays for 6 hours, but only 4 times per year – and even then there are exceptions.  For example, they will not be allowed to open on Sundays during advent.
