Chanuka and St. Nicholas Day are just one day apart, so the residents of the annex have two small celebrations. For Chanuka, they give each other a few small gifts and then, due to a shortage, light the candles for only ten minutes. St. Nicholas Day is more festive; Miep and Elli conspire with Mr. Frank for the occasion. At night, all the residents go downstairs and discover a large basket covered with a mask of Black Peter and filled with presents.
