Now, the people at Van Cortlandt museum decided to invite him THIS SATURDAY, December 1st. He will be arriving there on his horse. Since the wafel-master is a huge fan, we are taking the truck up there to serve the old man with waffles (and a carrot for the horse).

Carrots and Wafels
I am not sure if many of you know Saint Nicholas. The good old man is sort of the European equivalent to Santa Klaus. There's a few differences though. He rides a horse instead of reindeer (that horse must be fed carrots by naughty kids), during the summer he lives in Spain, and also has a huge steamboat that he uses every year to come up to Belgium. We celebrate him on December 6.
