    Explore New York City’s oldest house and experience the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas which evolved into the American tradition of Santa Claus, with traditional music, treats, stories, and crafts.

    The Wyckoff House Museum presents Sinterklaas, or St. Nicholas Day, on Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum from 1-4pm.

    The festivities will kick off at 1pm with a traditional concert by colonial balladeer Linda Russell. Children will enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback at 2:30pm. In the Dutch tradition, visitors can feed St. Nicholas’s faithful horse carrots and hay. Children are invited to sign the Red Book with St. Nicholas before he tells the traditional tale of The Bakers Dozen.

    Guests can sip on hot cider, try their hand at colonial games, create a traditional pomander, decorate a Dutch clog for Sinterklaas, or craft an ornament for the tree lighting that will close the day as the sun goes down.
