Due to COVID-19, the organizers did not hold a public activity to welcome Sinterklaas. Children could follow the arrival of Sinterklaas and its helpers via a television program. The Sinterklaas Foundation organized a program that included storytelling, dance, singing, cupcake making, magic, drawing, and prizes.
In her speech, the Minister asked Sinterklaas to take COVID-19 away in his bag because COVID is naughty. It prevented our country from leading a normal, healthy, and quiet life. The Minister thanked Sinterklaas and his helpers, the foundation, and those who contributed to the beautiful welcome program for Sinterklaas.
