Sinterklaas in Holland

Quentin’s celebration at school…something so different in Holland! We really must go and be with them at this time of year…the tradition dates back to medieval times and is so interesting! Sinterklaas is assisted by many mischievous helpers with black faces and colourful Moorish dresses. These helpers are called ‘Zwarte Pieten’ (Black Petes). Quentin is dressed as Sinterklaas (St Nicholas) here; what a star!
