Pepernoten and Speculaas from the Sint
"Het Sinterklaas feest" is like many other folk and traditional holidays surrounded by a large number of traditions, which are often for hundreds of years old. For example, we eat "pepernoten" en "speculaaspoppen", we put our shoe infront of the fireplace hopefully Sinterklaas wil fill it with nice gifts. Also on the 5th of december (Birthday Sinterklaas) many gifts will be given by "Sinterklaas" and his "zwarte pieten" Black peter ( Black Pete ) ."Zwarte pieten" are the helpers of Sinterklaas, Their faces mostly painted black or in different colors.
