We learned about Sinterklaas and Swarte Pete and sang a Dutch Christmas song.
The kids went on a potato hunt throughout the house. Then Swarte Pete arrived throwing candy out to all the children and Sinterklaas gave a gift to each child.
It was a really lovely night with friends, new friends, neighbors and Gretchen's family. This is a picture of me with the two hostesses, Lola and Gretchen, as they are adorned in their Dutch costumes (minus the hats).
