He comes, he comes…

Sinterklaas has arrived with his ‘pakjesboot’ (boat full of presents) in The Netherlands today. We are still celebrating this dutch tradition as despite the distance, he somehow managed to bring some presents ‘Up North’ in the past years, NICE! 😉

We unfortunately have to do without the special atmosphere in the cities, children going crazy when Sinterklaas and his Zwarte Pieten appear, and obviously the sweets like speculaaspepernoten and kruidnoten…yeah, it’s a nice tradition! (and very hard to explain to foreigners, especially Zwarte Piet (Black Pete or Blackface)! 😉 ).

Ha, and I guess that this recording of the typical Sinterklaas song ‘hij komt’ does not really help either…jeez, Ellen ten Damme sings it sooo sexy! 😉
