Sinterklaas in the Dam

Sinterklaas came to Amsterdam today it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

(If you don’t know the Sinterklaas story you can click here and learn about it.)

It was the first time I actually got to see his arrival.

So many anxious young faces dressed as the iconic Zwart Piet and so many red flags waving!

I loved seeing the little ones giving their drawing and letters to Zwart Piet so Sinterklaas could see them later on.

Sinterklaas shook my soul mates hand while I was snapping away pictures I am so jealous. Hehe.

I tried to capture as many pictures as I could on this festive day but for the people who know Zwart Piet you know they never stay put so it was really hard.

Also due to my shortness my soul mate had to hold me up or we had to find a curb for me to stand on. Hehe.

But it is truly a magical experience.  I walked around and got to see him three times which I still think for ME wasn't enough ;)

Holland has something very special going on during this holiday… It’s probably one of the least materialistic Christmases I know. YOU GO HOLLAND!

She was showing her drawing she made :)
