TICKids Sinterklaas party a hit!

sinterklaas-2016-12by Mala Raman

On 1 December 2016, Sinterklaas and two of his Zwarte Piets dropped by the Reeshof Wijkcentrum to celebrate the season with TIC. The evening started with lots of snacking on chocolate pepernoten and chocolate covered cookies. A crowd of kids brought along their parents for the event and happily, a few new guests as well as our own TIC members joined in for the festive evening.

Loud knocking on the doors from one of the Piets announced the arrival of Sinterklaas. The kids were enthralled watching them enter the room as the Piets started “throwing” pepernoten and snoep (candy) to the kids.

While the adults enjoyed some snacks and Gluhwein, Sinterklaas was kept busy sinterklaas-2016-14checking his book for the personal details of what the kids had been up to this past year. Sinterklaas greeted the children and gave them gifts. When the last child had his or her gift, they all helped with a countdown to open their gifts at the same time.

With a last wave for the kids, Sinterklaas made his way out of room promising to be back next year. Whether using the name Sinterklaas or Santa Claus or something else entirely, the holiday spirit was alive and well at TIC.
