Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas)  arrived. 

Published November 23, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

Since this will be our 3rd Christmas in The Netherlands, and we have never witnessed Sinterklaas arriving in Leiden, we decided to see it this year. In The Netherlands Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas) brings the children presents on December 5th. 

There was even entertainment,  including a band singing classic songs,  in Dutch of course. Since I recognised the tune, I was singing them in English.   

After standing around in the cold for a while, surrounded by lots of people, Sinterklaas’ canal barge arrived. It’s The Netherlands so of course he arrives by boat. 

If you go you’ll love the atmosphere as everyone is there for the same reason.

Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
