Sinterklaas tradition is a Dutch custom which takes place on the 5th of December ( Pakjesavond).During that event friends and family give each other gifts or surprises which come with a poem - a little like Secret Santa. Unfortunately these daysmany national traditions become forgotten as the world is more and more global.
To save our Dutch tradition from being forgotten and let everybody in Netherlands enjoy this event we created “Sinterklaas Evening For Everybody. The dedicated website enabled everybody in Holland to enjoy Sinterklaas evening. Also people who didn’t have a chance participate in this event now could join in.For only € 1,50 people could buy a ticket to join the action. With a ticket they were getting another participant’s name and an address and could start right away with buying a gift, writing a poem and sending it with the post service. The money collected from selling tickets were spent on a noble cause. We bought gifts for children whose parents couldn’t afford to celebrate Sinkterklaas.
