Sinterklaas .. !

Today we are celebrating "Sinterklaas", the Dutch equivalent of Santa. We eat "pepernoten" (gingerbread nuts) and chocolate letters and we share presents.
S for Santa and you ate it. haha. Nice arrangement,

Ah fabulous - is this the day where people leave out shoes for sweets from St Nicholas? I do enjoy learning about different traditions. It looks very tasty. Pepernoten look delicious!

@casablanca This is actually the day when you stop leaving out your shoes with carrots for Sinterklaas' horse. You can start to leave out your shoe when Sinterklaas arrives in the country from Spain by steamship. This year he arrived on 18 November, an event that is broadcasted live on tv .. ;o)

Hope you’ve had a nice ‘pakjesavond’? Waarschijnlijk wordt die kaart (met een zwarte Zwarte Piet) ooit geld waard ;-)
