Celebrating the Advent season with St. Nicholas, an angel and a devil

One of the advantages of staying in the Czech Republic this year is taking part in pre-Christmas Advent events, such as this weekend’s sv. Mikuláš (St. Nicholas). Although the Advent season in the Czech Republic is formally observed from the fourth Sunday leading up to Christmas Day, the holiday season is kicked into high gear with the December 5 arrival of Mikuláš, a bearded figure dressed in a bishop’s robes with a staff and miter (bishop’s hat).
