In Belgium We are celebrating on December 6 a real Saint .. named Sinterklaas ... thats the Dutch word for it .. and you can translate it as Santa Claus .. yep not that one of XMas
The Belgian Sinterklaas aka Santa Claus is using a horse to get on the roof of all houses and to give all "good" children a present
Well .. I'm born on that day !
euhmmmm ... already 48 years ago
but don't worry .. I don't need any spare parts so far :)

I was just willing to share with you all this special day of the year
take care and enjoy your weekend

Take yourself out to Bobejanland near Herentals!
I went there in the 1980's during my first Euro-visit.
Gotta love a Cowboy-Western Theme park in Belgium!

We had a SinterKlaas celebration in our region, as it was settled by the Dutch 400 years ago.
Here's a present for you:

More popular these days is Plopsaland near Adinkerke (near the Nordsea) ... a great day to share with the kids

Bobbejaan Schoepen the original owner of Bobbejaanland is retired since 2007 .. the theme park still excist
He was even wellknown into the early 50s at the USA as country singer with English translations of his biggest Flemish hits

I lived at the Franz Masereel Art Centre for a summer in 1985, at the age of thirteen and had a fine time!
Sorry for butchering the spelling...

Glad you could tolerate my singing.
