Saint Nicolas

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend. As I said on Friday, Saturday was pretty festive in Delft. Like every year, the arrival of Saint Nicholas in the city is a huge feast and success. The Zwarte Piet, Saint Nicholas’s helpers, were on jet skies for a good 45 minutes, going up and down the canal, making the children laugh and having a good time. One almost fell in the water – the kids were hysterical. Then Saint Nicolas arrived on a huge boat with I don’t know how many Zwarte Piet. Even though we see this every year, it still remains very impressive. And then he came back on his white horse. This is definitely an pretty awesome day for the children. Some were very impressed, almost speechless with their big eyes staring at Saint Nicholas. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy!
