With thanks to Brian from South Dakota we have a podcast-episode dedicated to riding the bike. Thanks for writing the script and helping make a brand new episode. Brian loves riding the bike and thus the subject was easy for him to pick. The Dutch are known for all the bikes that are present so the lesson does make a lot of sense. Please read on for the things you will learn in this episode.
Something really traditional happened today: Like every year Sinterklaas (see picture) arrived in our country. Typically that is very celebrational with music, singing songs and of course many, many children. He will stay for three weeks and celebrate his birthday as he has done for centuries. That means the good times for children are beginning, because they get gifts. First by placing a shoe near the chimney and singing songs at night, secondly on the evening before (December 5th) presents will suddenly arrive and the Good Holy Man might throw in a poem. Time to learn more about this event. Read on to see what you will learn.
