Sinterklaas en Zwarte Pieten

Originally uploaded by Reinhilde.

I had to be in the city and when I came out of the underground, suddenly I saw Sinterklaas and his helpers strolling over the Groenplaats! He even had his butler with him (or maybe that was his chauffeur). It put a smile on the face of most adults and made a few little ones anxious – it’s still 2 days till his big day, when you will see if you’ve been good enough during the last year so you get the presents you asked for…

My very first picture for my latest Flickr group, A Photo A Day Journal – I hope I will have the stamina to keep it up!
