Langsam lichtet sich auch der Behörden-Papierkram. Zumindest meine Rentenunterlagen sind hier von der BfA. Hat sich das ganze ja gelohnt, immerhin Rentenanspruch verdoppelt. Auch wenn es natürlich zum leben zu wenig ist *g*. Aber noch hab ich ja mind 30 Jahre zum arbeiten. Einige andere priv. Vorsorgepläne lösen wir auf und lassen sie auszahlen. Immerhin hat sich der Papierberg im Büro deutlich verkleinert.
Heute ist Nikolaus und fast hätten wir das hier übersehen ;-/. Aber Dominik hat doch was bekommen. *puh*
To explain "Nikolaus" for readers from other countries I have a quotation from wikipedia.org
"In Northern Germany, Nikolaus is usually celebrated on a small scale. Many children put a boot called Nikolaus-Stiefel (Nikolaus boot) outside the front door on the night of 5 December. St. Nicholas fills the boot with gifts and sweets overnight, and at the same time checks up on the children to see if they were good, polite and helpful the last year. If they were not, they will have a tree branch (Rute) in their boots instead. Sometimes a Nikolaus impersonator also visits the children at school or in their homes and asks them if they have been good (sometimes ostensibly checking his golden book for their record), handing out presents on the basis of their behavior. This has become more lenient in recent decades, and this task is often taken over by the Weihnachtsmann (Father Christmas). In more catholic regions, Nikolaus is dressed very much like a bishop and rides on a horse, welcomed at public places by a large crowd. Typical in Germany for Saint Nicholas Day is the Stutenkerl, a pastry made of sweet leavened dough.
In Austria, Bavaria and Tyrol (Austro-Bavarian speaking regions), St. Nicholas is accompanied by Krampus, represented as a beast like creature, generally demonic in appearance."
