Thursday Evening Festive Events 4-7pm at Bene Brew


Who is Sinterklaas and how do Belgians celebrate 6 December?

Who is Sinterklaas and how do Belgians celebrate 6 December?
Whilst in most countries children must wait until the last few days of the year to unwrap gifts below their Christmas tree, in Belgium, they are visited by a jovial old man dressed in red on 6 December every year. But only if they behave, that is.
On the evening of 5 December, children across Belgium will leave a shoe in the living room and the next morning (provided they have been good throughout the year) they will wake up to presents, as well as speculoos, chocolate Sint figures, chocolate coins, marzipan and tangerines.
