Anarosa and her Chocolate Letter.

For those of you who have no clue what is “Sinterklaas“, just click on the words “Sinterklaas” in this text and it will take you to several other sites that explains what is “Sinterklaas” in English, with pictures and more just so you dont confuse it with Christmas because they are two complete different holidays, altho I am sure there are some connections to be found, the story is quite different. Ofcourse if you look for images on Google you can find a lot more pictures about it in many places and situations. After you have learned what is “Sinterklaas” you should continu to read on here.

Last year we basically skipped Sinterklaas because my youngest daughter was merely a few months old and my oldest was already 11. So instead we had a nice Christmas celebration. This year I wanted to do a little bit about it, not to much because shes barely 1 and a half and what does a child that young know about this stuff anyway. I doubt she understand anything of it. But the tradition that we did picked up here this year was putting the shoe with a carrot for the horse and singing songs just before bedtime. Then in the morning ofcourse there where little gifts to be found in the shoes. Nothing really big, just some candy, because like i said it doesnt really have a meaning to her yet I just wanted to introduce this holiday a little bit to her allready in a manner that its fun and maybe recognisable for her in the next years when we celebrate it. On the last morning she found in her shoe the traditional chocolate letter. I was late with shopping for them because there was only one letter A to be found anymore in the store. So for Antonio I bought the letter P for Papa and then ofcourse for me the M for Mama and the M for Merel, my oldest daughter. I am in doubt wheter she actualy understood what was going on all with the carrots in the shoes n the singing n why there was a package in the shoes, but she did understood what was a chocolate letter when she saw it and she also knew right what to do with it! I took some great pictures of this. And no worries we didnt let her finish that letter, after taking the pictures I took it away from her n cut of a little piece that she could have.

Now on to the next holiday, wonder how Anarosa is going to experience all that and how stressfull for us that is going to be. Last year she wasnt walking or even crawling arround in the house, she wasnt able to reach for the Christmas balls in the tree and prolly didnt even noticed any of the other decorations. Not sure yet how she can be part in the decorating but I’m sure I find a way. I just hope she stays out of the tree LMAO. For now, enjoy the pictures of Anarosa and her Chocolate Letter.
