Friday figments & photos: #SinterThanksgiving & SantaCon

It’s beginning to look a lot like #SinterThanksgiving… no wait, what? It’s just the best ever meal and table full of laughter you’ll get this side of the continent.

Simply combine 3 Kiwis, a Minnesotan native, a lovely Dutch lady and two bemused Brits, and you’ve invented Sinter/Thanksgiving, a hybrid holiday of all the best bits of American and Dutch festive holidays. Bubbly, an incredible Turkey, pepernoten, kruidnootjes, mashed potato, stuffing, taai-taai poppen, chocolate coins, marzipan potatoes, a lot of cheek about lack of kettle ownership and a gorgeous living room. That’s what you need.

…and Pecan Pie. Perfection, huh?

I was also lucky enough to accidentally find myself on one of the routes of SantaCon – a terrific pub crawl of epic proportions and thousands of merry makers dressed as Santa.
