Kerst in Oud Kampen met The Spice Daddies op de Botermarkt, op zaterdag 21 en zondag 22 december.
Worldwide Candle Lighting (Wereldlichtjesdag). The second Sunday of December the children that passed away are remembered. At 7 PM candles are lit around the world for these children. I am honoured to be invited to sing during the commemoration in ‘s Hertogenbosch, for the second time yesterday.
Playing Spanish music for the Saint Nicolas celebration in Brunswijck, a home for the elderly in Eindhoven.
For my non-Dutch friends, Saint Nicolas was a Greek bishop from the town of Myra, nowadays in Turkey. He is the patron saint of children and in Dutch tradition he arrives from Spain in a steamboat every year in December, bringing sweets and gifts for the children that have been good.
From Spain, not Turkey, hence the Spanish music...
