Happy Sinterklaas Day!


Hope you don't get coal in your wooden shoe!

(Here's what I'm talking about, including why it's controversial--something that's worth paying attention to. I should have posted this earlier in the evening, I suppose, though at least this is easily in time for any Belgians living in the Rocky Mountain Time Zone...)

The chorus I sing with is doing Benjamin Britten's Saint Nicolas cantata for our Christmas concert--some of the Nicolas stories are rather interesting. One part is downright Sweeney Todd-ish with three little boys chopped up and pickled before Nicolas comes along and resurrects them.
