Pakjesavond

Yesterday the birthday of Sinterklaas was celebrated in the Netherlands. Family members present each-other little gifts on the evening of December, 5th. These gifts are to be creatively disguised (for which the Dutch use the French word "surprise"), and are usually accompanied by a humorous poem which often teases the recipient for well-known bad habits or other character deficiencies. In my case it wasn't too difficult to find inspiration for an appropriate "surprise": Lieke built a very realistic copy of my broken kayak.
