Wow, that will be great, thanks Hanne.
I've just found some very old ones, will try to post them soon!!
Hi Graciela Faye Suzy and Jacques.
Christmas Eve is in the most families not really celebrated, some people go to Church, most not. Then we have have two days that are family days. Mostly all together. I think a bit as your Thanksgiving.
I never saw or heard of the tradition of coal, it's possible that some did it but I don't know. Yes Jacques, everyone likes the Sint.
De sint trkt veel aandacht!
We still (as adults) give coal in stockings....just because none of us are perfect! :)
Many years ago I read that if the children were naughty Black Peter left a lump of coal rather than sweets. Is that a tradition of the past or not true?
No, we only celebrate (my family) Christmas Eve and on Christmas day we recuperate from all the eating and drinking!
Hi Gracie, me too. We always celebrate two Christmas days, do you too?
I love christmas tradition doesn't matter where in the world! and I love your explanation Ank! thanks
Are you sure? Hey lol, there is an other part of the story. If you were naughty, then they put you in the bag and take you with them to Spain. (nowadays they don't tell that the kids anymore) So then when you are in Spain it's more easy to come to NL. lol
Sinterklaas or Santa Claus... we all have been good this year.
Wow Hanna, do you have a photo of that? I think that must be wonderful.
His beard is absolutely marvellous!! Before Santa Claus and Coca Cola, we had The Old Father Christmas, mostly wearing green clothes and with a lit candle on top of his hat. Thanks so very much Ank!!
Very much the same Sissy. Even the colors.
He even reminds you of our Santa. Thanks Sissy
Yes you are right, he is a very old man, thats why.
He has a magnificent beard!
