This year we started the tradition of Sinterklas from My mission. We've had to modify it a bit, but the kids got out the wooden shoes for the patron saint of children. We had surprises and made and ate Olliebollen (fried pastries that are similar to doughnuts). We sang dutch songs and learned a little bit about the dutch culture and people. It was fun for dad to tell mission stories about Sinterklas and eating warm olliebollen on cold cold holiday night years ago in the Netherlands.
