Edgar’s Blog: Sinterklaas

Last Saturday Sinterklaas came to town!

Sinterklaas is the holy saint of the Dutch folks. Where the rest of the world is celebrating Christmas, the Dutch have Sinterklaas. And a lot of Dutch families celebrate both holidays. The story of Sinterklaas is quite interesting.

Sinterklaas aka Sint lives in Madrid and every year he comes to visit the Netherlands. He travels by boat, a classic old steamboat. He brings lots of his helpers and also his white horse along on board. Each year he arrives in a different city and this year it will be Maasland. There will be a big parade with Sint on his white roan (horse), Amerigo. His helpers will handout small biscuits called ”pepernoten”.

On the 5th of December the holy saint celebrates his birthday by giving presents to all of the children that have been good. If you haven’t behaved Sint and his helpers will take you on the boat to Spain and teach you some manners for a year. This is supposed to be a punishment but most kids wish they could go off to Spain with Sint and his helpers.

The night of 4 to 5 December Sint and his helpers will climb the roofs of all the Dutch families. Sinterklaas even goes on his horse down the chimney. Must be one flexible horse… His helpers carry all the presents and drop them off through the chimney. Children often leave a carrot or the like for the horse of Sint, Amerigo. They have to be done just before sunrise. The next morning children go wild when they come downstairs and see what Sinterklaas has left them.

It may sound impossible but hey, Santa Clause has a flying sleigh with flying  reindeers! One thing is certain, Sinterklaas has a sweet tooth! . Specially ”gevulde speculaas” with my masala chai tea!
