December Daily or almost . . . SinterKlaas Celebration

We have Dutch Heritage . . . and on December 5th Dutch children leave their shoes outside/ or near the fireplace to see if Sinterklaas will come and leave them a treat.  The Sinterklaas Celebration goes from Dec. 5- December 6th   His feast day is observed by exchanging gifts and chocolate letters (of the recipient's initial).  We have a relative living there now for work and they brought home the chocolate letters for the kids.   When My kids were small my Father-in -law would go to a Dutch market in town to get the letters.   So celebrating Sinterklaas day has become somewhat of a tradition for us.   What traditions do you celebrate during this wondrous season?
