Saint Nicolas

Saint Nicolas

Saturday 16 November saw the arrival of Saint Nicolas (known here as Sinterklaas) in Wageningen. The white haired saint with a long beard makes the journey from Spain each year by boat to celebrate his birthday on December 5 with the children in the Netherlands. He is accompanied by Zwarte Pieten, who are often more of a hindrance than a help with their tricks and clowning about.
