Sinterklaas (Or: Candy in my shoe)

When I went to grab my shoes earlier this afternoon to do a few errands, I found a gift from Sinterklaas in my shoe!

What is in this Sinterklaas gift

the gift, placed on top of my netbook keyboard for size comparison

It’s tradition to leave small gifts in the shoes of children. This can happen anytime between the day Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet arrive and December 5, though it does not need to happen every day. Children are given larger gifts on December 5 itself.

Stickers, candy, and a tiny plastic book. Dank je, Sinterklaas. 😉
