Sinterklaas related Posts
Sinterklaas is a Dutch tradition that has been celebrated for at least 350 years, testimony is given by the ‘The Feast of Saint Nicholas’, a painting by the Dutch Master, Jan Steen in 1665. This painting is one of his best and happiest and depicts a family celebrating the feast of Saint Nicholas.
It captures all the tales about Sinterklaas – the communal nature, the gifts or lack of for both good and not-so-good children
What strikes me is the basket of goodies full of biscuits and bread and what looks like a large speculaas cookie.
