Sinterklaas Essentials

My husband's daughter K sent us a package of goodies
from the Netherlands
to help make our St. Nicholas party authentic.


A package of Flags on a Line

Wrapping paper with Sinterklaas and Black Pete

And a postcard with a note

I'd show you the gift tags, but they're not very PC.
Black Pete, a Moor and assistant to St. Nick,
is always portrayed in a cartoonish blackface kind of way.
I don't think it would fly very well here.
But it seems to be OK in Holland.
