Dutch tradition; "home-made suprises"
« on: December 02, 2018, 12:51:05 PM »
Hi all,

Here in Holland we have this tradition called "Sinterklaas" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas.
It is basically what Santa is in other countries but here it is celebrated on the 5th of December.

Now, this is only for children. Once children get older, the fairy tale is busted and 'they no longer believe in Sinterklaas'.
Some of us then switch to "surprises" which is also held around the 5th of December. Basically we create things for others accompanied with a poem and a present.

My nephew created this "AMG Diorama" for me, as he heard about my Battlefield activities for the AMG squads.

That is me on that rock trying to snipe a guy  8)

Well, I thought you all might get a laugh out of this.

The present was a bottle of "famous grouse whiskey" so my performance may deteriorate somewhat  ::)
Cheers!

Erno
