The tradition of SinterKlass

Fleur’s Daddy is from Holland and he has told her all about SinterKlass visiting children in Holland on 6th December. Fleur enjoyed sharing the traditions with 2J. Sinterklass arrives on a white horse and parades around the city giving out Kruidnoten, small, round gingerbread-like cookies to the children. Fleur brought some Kruidnoten to share with the class. She told us that children are given a chocolate letter matching the first letter of their name. We were all very envious of Fleur’s chocolate ‘F’!
