Sinterklaas is in the Netherlands

1972 or 1973, Sinterklaas at school, I'm the girl at the left.
Hurrah, Sinterklaas is here together with his 'zwarte Pieten'. The 'zwarte pieten' are taking care of Sinterklaas, they help him because Sinterklaas is very old,  they climb into the chimneys to put little gifts in childrens shoes and are just so much fun.
Last saturday Sinterklaas came in the Theresiastreet, and I thought about all the good memories in my childhood: dag Sinterklaas, dag Zwarte Piet. And remembered the songs we were singing.

 How exciting was this time, and how we waited for the 5th of december, the day Sinterklaas and his zwarte Pieten came along, knocking on the door, giving gifts to the children.

So I found this old school picture of me, I must have 6 or 7 years old, and Sinterklaas came along at school. What an excitement.
