St Nicolas Day, or Sinterklaas day is basically christmas in the Netherlands, Flanders, and various other countries. The ledgend is that Sinterklaas comes from Spain on a steam ship in mid-November with his helper or "slave", "Black Pete". On Sinterklass ever (december 5) children put wooden shoes (or their normal shoes) either by their chimney, the window or the radiator, depending on their traditions, with a carot or a sugar cube in it for Sinterklass's horses. Black Pete comes into the houses and gives the children candy in their shoes.

The families give the presents, but the children are to think they are from Sinterklass. They hide them around the house with riddels and poems of where to find them, and watch as they try to find out where Black Pete had hidden their gifts.

this is a helpful sorce: http://www.expatica.com/nl/life_in/f...de--25830.html

And my birthday just so happens to fall on Sinterklaas Day!!

I am glad to see that the visit is going well. When speaking to others, she is always attentive and comfortable.

Was this visit scheduled before they knew the wedding-date of MC? It´s a pity that Mathilde didn´t attend. But I´m also quite sure she might have stolen the bride´s show.....

I wonder, did she take a commercial flight? Or did she have a private plane? I know that they sometimes take private planes, but that does not seem to be the case here this time.

This article is very interesting. I think that it is really wonderful that Mathilde is involved in getting young people to become more proactive in AIDS awareness and prevention.
