November 25, 2013 we were invited to Den Haag Ward Family Home Evening for a Dutch Dinner and SINTER KLAAS!
Sinter Klaas arrived in the Netherlands on the weekend of November 16, 2013 and stays until December 5. He leaves after delivering presents to the children on December 5th.
So it was a great pleasure for us to meet Sinter Klaas and Zwarte Piet.
In order to receive our gift from Sinter Klaas, we had to sing a Kerstdage Zang.
President was trying to get out of it by telling Sinter Klaas we didn't know any Dutch Kerstdage zangen.
I was not going to have any of that, so I started singing "Up on the House Top"
President watched with an 'I can't believe this' look.
I just kept singing!
So he finally joined in the song and the actions!
We gave the song our best and got our gift.
I have decided that Zwarte Piet is a cross between
an entertainer, comedian, clown, and jokester!
And no one is safe!
Everyone at the party!
The Missionaries serving in Den Haag.
(Note: see the Nooten koekjes on the floor--Zwarte Piet starts food fights too!)
