DUTCH CULTURE: SeNdinG ChRisTmaS CarDs


It is here a tradition to send christmas cards to all friends and family members. Last week we sent 21 christmas cards and yesterday another 19 cards, thus a total of 40. We already received these christmas cards (on the picture) and pasted them on one of the doors in the hallway. More cards are on the way, I think. If you send hundred cards you can also expect the same number back. It is a Dutch attitude if you give something, you will also receive. I am talking in a positive tone. You will be expecting a full mailbox everyday until christmas. They also have christmas stamps (.34 euro cents = 22.60 pesos) which is cheaper than the ordinary stamps.
Do you send christmas cards to your loved ones and friends?

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
