November will always be about Sinterklaas

Speculaaspietjes home

What fun and excitement, just a short 2 and a half weeks and Sinterklaas will be arriving in Holland again! Of course it will be a great party again this year! Let everybody quarrel about Piet or no Piet, we celebrate the Sinterklaas Party our way. Having fun with the minimonsters is our mission.

It is getting colder outside already so we like to stay in more. We will be crafting a lot, including Sinterklaas surprises and gifts, we cook and bake lots of december goodies and we read a heap of great books.

On November 12th The Sinterklaas Journal (10 minute broadcasts) starts already, every night at 18.00h up to and including December 4th.
 
On Saturday, November 17th at 12.00 until +/- 13.30 o'clock we all watch television. Then we see the steamship with Sinterklaas and his Piets arrive in Zaandijk. We look forward to it already!
 
In Rotterdam the arrival of the Sint is also scheduled on Saturday, November 17. If you want to be there make sure you're on the Willemsplein by 12.30 for the show and the arrival, followed by the parade of Sinterklaas and his Piets riding through the city centre. As always you can beget a Pieten-Diploma on Grote Kerkplein in Rotterdam-center.
 
So join in the Sinterklaas fun and bake, read and make arts&crafts with snazzie!
