to all my Blogger Friends all over the world.

Hope that you are all well, and that you have a very happy time, with your families, or whoever you are with!

Yes that is me sitting on Saint Nicholas lap with his helpers,Black Peters!

The Feast of Sinterklaas, or St. Nicholas, is an annual event which has been uniquely Dutch and Flemish for centuries. St. Nicholas' Feast Day, December 6th, is observed in most Roman Catholic countries primarily as a feast for small children. But it is only in the Low Countries - especially in the Netherlands - that the eve of his feast day (December 5th) is celebrated nationwide by young and old, christian and non-christian, and without any religious overtones.

Take Care everyone, see you all next year!! :-) HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
