Sinterklaas 5th of december

Sinterklaas, Sint Nicolaas or pakjesavond (gifts evening) is on the 5th of december. I think we are the ownly country in the world that are celebrating Sinterklaas, with poems and suprisegifts (hide the real gift into the funny gift). Teasing each other.

Although it's especially for little children who still believe in Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet, there are lot of adults who are drawing lots and buying presents and making poems.

This year it was just the four us and the dog: Dieuwke and Willem, Rob and Caro... Mies. We started with our traditional 'gourmet' menu' and then it was time for presents. Here is an impression.

Poem for Mies (our dog)
Woef woef waf waf woef waf waf
waf waf woef woef waf woef waf
kwispel, kwispel, waf waf woef
High five, slobber, woef woef waf
I wonder who is more curious ...
Waf woef, woef waf, lik lik lik,
woef, waf
waf woef
kef kef

with kind regards Sint and Piet

Where is my gift.....

'Blije doos' for Dieuwke and Willem

Made by Dieuwke
We ended the evening with a movie. A very special movie called 'Sint' from the director Dick Maas.

And if you think this would be a nice family film, you are really wrong it's a horror movie!!!!! How good to have quilts on the sofa to hide under (especially Willem).

Gezellig! Wie heeft die mooie surprise gemaakt? Volgens mij vieren de Belgen ook Sinterklaas. Ben benieuwd hoe lang we deze traditie nog behouden......
