Invitation for November 28 — Sinterklaas at Het Pand


International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

We have a special event coming on November 28, namely our annual Dutch Sinterklaas celebration! On this evening we will give some attention to the beloved Dutch saint – Sinterklaas. The Dutch celebrate the feast of Sinterklaas on December 5, a favorite day of children and a day of gifts for everyone.

Bring something as well

This time we’d like to ask everyone to bring along:

  1. One extra shoe or boot (besides the ones you are wearing).
  2. A small gift costing no more than 3 euro’s. The gift should be suitable for anyone, male or female (you can also make the gift). Please wrap it.
  3. If possible, a short poem of 2 or 4 lines in English (Example:“If you really like to eat, Open this and find a treat” or “Here is something just for you; Sint has put it in your shoe.”)
We will celebrate Sinterklaas together and who knows: maybe Sint will pay a visit!

Info

Our meetings are held on the last Saturday of each month in Het Pand, Madoerastraat 16 in Groningen, from 18:00 until 22:00 o’clock. A simple meal of soup and bread, coffee and tea and homemade cake is provided. (We always have a special soup for vegetarians.)

The evening is free (If you should wish to make a contribution there is a box present for that purpose)
