Sinterklaas Eve

Tonight is the "Gifts Evening" when Sinterklaas gives his presents to the children and adults in the Netherlands.These sweets are part of the party, Marsepain, Chocolate letters and filled Speculaas with almond paste.

Our neighbours asked us to put this bag with gifts in front of their door tonight when it is dark as a surprise for the kids that Pete left it there for them. It is every year a fun run away for us they don't see us.

  5. Gosh how interesting Marianne.. I love the treats left there for Sinterklaas, they look much tastier than the milk and cookies he gets here :) Have fun delivering the bag tonight!
