Don't forget to leave a treat for his horse.  Cheesy


Nikolaus/Sinterklaas coming on a horse? That thought is outright revolutionary Shocked.

Santa Clause is different though. Much greater distances in the US. It's clear he needs some kind of transportation, be it a horse or a sled with reindeers. laugh

Well, he arrives in the Netherlands and Belgium on a steam boat from Spain of course. But once he's here, he normally travels on his white horse.

Here they are:



But it seems this horse had a low startle point. Shocked

Well, when it comes to Sinterklaas, the word is 'as long as he doesn't have to sing'.  Wink

Ok, I change my previous statement to: Nikolaus coming on a horse? That thought is outright revolutionary Shocked.
(You revolutionary Belgians, you! Wink)

I bought the kid's presents for Nikolaus today. Gotta get some sweets tomorrow. And now I'm off to wrap the stuff. Are you already done with the preperations?

I bought the present (a WII game console) a while ago and the kids are already playing with it. I know that's not the way to do it, but my olderst daughter informed me that the pre-christmas exams start on monday so of course, if I Sinterklaas waited until December 6th, there would be no time to play. Yeah, she's a clever one.  Grin

So no more presents on sunday morning, just sweets, chocolate, marzipan and tangerines.

Looks like this Sinterklaas traveled with a whole crew of Black Piets instead of just one.

When my children were young, they would always write letters of welcome for Santa. We would set a special twig table in front of the fireplace with a glass of milk, cookies, and carrots with ferny green tops for the reindeer. And the letters. Then, in the dead of night, my husband and I would perform a ritual. We would scatter a scoopful of ashes from the fireplace on the Oriental rug and then he would place his big hiking boots in it, making tracks. Then we would drink the milk (him), eat the cookies, and nibble on the carrots. We would write a return note from Santa on the bottom of the Christmas letters. Then we would proceed to fill up the stockings and put the remaining presents under the tree.
