The Lights of Sinterklaas and Christmas in Amsterdam

Sinterklaas is a Dutch thing; basically a person symbolising a holiday on Dec 5&6 that goes by the same name. Before that holiday starts, the canals get some light artwork as part of the Amsterdam Light Festival. At the same time, some Christmas lights start going up, although I’ve been told that most Dutch people won’t put up a Christmas tree or decorations until after the Sinterklaas day of December 6.

So, Piper and I have captured a variety of lights in Amsterdam seen in early December.
