St Nicolas and his black companion

more participants here


Yesterday was St. Nicolaus day, very much celebrated in the Netherlands, even more than Christmas, but not so well known or celebrated in other countries, except the Germans.

So to make the Dutch guests happy there was St. Nicolas with his companion Farmhand Rupert or Servant Rupert and greeted the guests. Afterwards he went from table to table and asked if we had been good the whole year apparently we all were, because he was content with our behaviour. He asked me to get up and make this picture of us.

St Nicolaus and me

We play Scrabble

 and  our place on the beach

It is still very windy and we hide behind our windscreens. But it is warm and we can swim, only getting out of the water is a little cold !

Oh wow, even St Nicholas came? That must be some resort you're staying at. Although his outfit must be the worst I have ever seen!

That certainly is an impressive resort with a visit from St Nicholas, hope it warms up a little.

How nice the resort celebrated St Nicholas day for visitors!
I wish I could join you under that pretty parasol. It's very cold here!
