The Holidays Were Over, I'm Glad

 I'm happy to be back to my old routine.

How was your holiday season?
I was very busy since the last week of November. The festivities had already started last November. November 11, the Sint Maarten - I have to buy candies for the kids. It is like a "trick a treat" in the U.S.
December 5 is the Sinterklaas - the time of the year where kids receive lots of gifts. So, I had to go shopping and look for the gifts my kids wanted.
December 25, the first day of Christmas and December 26, the second day of Christmas - The Christmas season is the most tiresome time of the year but very joyful. We do not buy only gifts but also food. Family and friends come to visit or the other way around.
Before the year ends is the The New Year's Eve celebration where people welcome the year with lots of fireworks and food. We decided not to buy fireworks this year. I only prepared food to welcome the "YEAR OF THE RABBIT"
I am very glad that the holidays were over. I can now do my usual routine. No more shopping, I hate shopping.

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.
