This morning we celebrated 'Sinterklaas' at home. For the people who have no idea what this is (which I suspect to be the majority of my readers): it's a holiday in Belgium and the Netherlands, on which children get presents from Sinterklaas. He's pretty much the Catholic equivalent of Santa Claus. As you can see, even their names are alike.
My sister and me are actually too old to get presents, but my parents like Sinterklaas and so do we, so we decided to celebrate it once more.
We got spice nuts, tangerines, 'speculaas' (brown spiced biscuits), marzipan, 'amandelstaven' (pastry with almonds) and lots of chocolate.
Also, remember the David & Goliath pyjama I saw in Edinburgh
? Guess what Sinterklaas brought for me...
Thank you, Sinterklaas!
