In the Netherlands we are lucky; in December we do not only celebrate Sinterklaas but also Christmas. So once Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet have returned on their boat to Spain, we start preparing for the next festivities. Like all over the world we go shopping for presents, and, of course, we do that by bike!
This lady loves Xmas and something tells us her family gets lots of Red presents…

A shiny golden bike! Now let’s just pray that it fits under the Christmas tree.
