Sinterklaas on December 5th
Thanks to Astrid's gentle persistence (!), I went to one of Amsterdam's posh department stores last Saturday and found Sinterklaas. 222 photos later, I have chosen this one for SC today. If you want to see more and in color, click here
.Sinterklaas will come this evening from Spain, riding his white horse, true to Holland's tradition, to give his many gifts to all the good Children of this country. Names will have been drawn and special gifts made to present tonight, along with playful poems written.
This is new stuff for me but is something I need to know because our Santa Claus in the States is based on THIS Dutch tradition! You're never to old to get your education!
