They believe that if they were good, they will receive a lot of goodies, and if they were naughty, they will receive  switches (a small branch like a little broom). In some countries, switches are a emblem of the Saint Nicholas Day celebration and they are the only present that children receive it among with chocolate and oranges.In other countries children left in their boots cookies, hay or carrots for the old good man who bring them presents .
