Sint and Smurf

Sinterklaas, december 5th, time for giving presents and making little suprises. Here is the one I made for my wife Gertie. I wrote a rhyme with it, describing how Sinterklaas hired smurfs to help him (he ran out of Pieten), and they filled our house with smurfs. This makes fun of the fact that since a few weeks our children flew out, they live on their own now.
Sinterklaassurprise voor Gertie. Ons huis vol smurfen, ter vervanging van de kids, die tegenwoordig op kamers wonen.

Oh man wat goed weer. Vorig jaar weer overtroffen.

Dank je wel. Veel werk, maar het is de moeite waard.

We had dinner with a Dutch friend of ours here and he was telling me all about the special seasonal surprises they were doing in his house- reminds me of your traditions. Very neat to see.

Thanks Rob. It's really fun to make these surprises. The big advantage is that you can tease the receiver by making fun of him, he can never get angry with you. Haha.
