This is a typical dutch tradition. Sinterklaas (for most of you it will looks a little bit like Santa Claus) comes on the the 5th of december to bring the children little gifts.

His helper "Zwarte Piet" comes through to the chimney and put little gifts in your shoe. You sing Sinterklaassongs to let him know that your shoe is there. It's real fun for our dutch.

Traditional is also to make little poems to go along with the gifts to tease each other. Or you make a funny suprise gift with the real gift inside. We had a lovely evening at Barbara's house, celebrating Sinterklaas with: Dieuwke, Eric, Willem (their son), Barbara, Lucca (her son), Rob, Mies and myself.

We all enjoyed it very much, so we will put it on our calender for next year.

Willem got a suprise gift from Lucca. A super skylander.

Mies got a new outfit.

Dieuwke loved her new fleece pyama pants with little cats on it.

Willem got a survival package for the wednesday eve.
