Santa Clause

Photobucket

We thought we could bring Jason to see Saint Nicholas (Sinterklaas) this year, but we couldn't. Because the time that Saint Nicholas was coming to our neighborhood was around 1 pm. It is Jason's time to take a nap. I think next year, we can bring Jason to watch him. So....This year I went alone to make some shots :D It was funny, because all parents brought their children. Maybe I was the only one, who came in order to to take some photos hi hi hi hi.....

The first shot is when they came with the train.

Sinterklaas

The train came....

Sinterklaas

Can you see Saint Nicholas :D

Sinterklaas

Since he came out from the train I tried to take his picture and believe me it was so difficult :D There were so many people standing in front of me. See I missed it....

Sinterklaas

OK! This was better ^_^

Sinterklaas

When I was in there, I only tried to make shots. So....I didn't pay too much attention that I was standing in the first line when he approached me :D He gave me a hand, sooo....I did shake his hand then hi hi hi hi ..... SOOO many children tried to shake his hands and I got it ^_^. This shot was taken after I shook hands with him.

Sinterklaas

Nice pictures. I think that your Santa looks like the Pope. LOL. Nothing like what we have here in the states that's for sure.

Those are great photos! We don't have anything like your parade where I live. It looks like a wonderful and fun tradition.

What an unusual and interesting Santa! His headwear looks like the Archbishop of Canterbury wears in the UK. I love his staff!

Love Michelle, (Amel's friend) Lapland, Finland.

ps.. I read you won a competition! Congratulations!
