St. Nicolaas - 5december

Sinterklaas en Pieten


The photographer: Ron Nieuwenhuizen

To us the fifth and the sixth of december
are very important data.
On that day
Sinterklaas and his Pieten
celebrate their stay
in The Netherlands.
They pay a lot of visits
and leave presents
as a symbol
of the celebration of the birthday
of Sinterklaas.

This day is a traditional day.
Many schoolchildren see Sinterklaas
at their school.
Others receive him
as a welcome guest
in their home,
or are aware of his presence.
Zwarte Piet and Sinterklaas
can be anywhere.
They can be on the roof
or listening at the window.
They're there to surprise you!!

Not many will remember
that long ago
that caring man
gave three girls their dowry.
But the spirit
of his loving heart
has given joy
to many children and other people
through the ages.
