We had a Christmas market in Almere this weekend. It is something we didn't have for a long time in the Netherlands, Christmas was never a big issue here, but times are changing and now we take part in the festivities of a market. These ladies were singing Christmas carols.
There was even a Father Christmas.
Suddenly we heard the whistle of a steamship sailing into the harbor. For a moment I thought "Sinterklaas" had come back to bring more presents, but it had nothing to do with the Christmas market. The ship just came along to anchor here.
