Yahoo Sinterklaas is in the Netherlands again. For the ones who don't know Sinterklaas, he is the Dutch Santa Claus (kind of..) and he celebrates his birthday on 5 December always in Holland, bringing a lot of present and sweets for the kids. A real Dutch tradition.
Every year he arrives in the middle of November with his Steamboat from Spain and goes to all the kids. In every places they welcome Sinterklaas.
I went to Soest to welcome Sinterklaas and his Zwarte Pieten (Black Piets, his helpers..) together with Emil, Regina and Sander.
And boy, was it a spectacle this year!
He came with the helicopter!!!!!! Wow!
We were in time, so we had a good place where we could see all very well. And Emil?? He enjoyed it, but was a bit scared too!
