This week I saw...

......11 November is de dag....!
My daughter is in the 6th class (group 8)
at the Vrije School (Waldorf School).
The 6th class has to do the restaurant
and helping the toddlers with the coats
and lit the lantarns of the pumpkins!
(sorry, no original own art or photo's this time....)
Some history:
St. Martin's Day, also known as the Feast of St. Martin,
 Martinstag or Martinmas, the Feast of St Martin of Tours 
or Martin le Misércordieux, is a time for feasting celebrations.
 This is the time when autumn wheat seeding is completed. 
Historically, hiring fairs were held where farm laborers would
 seek new posts. The feast day, is November 11, the feast day 
of St. Martin of Tours, who started out as a Roman soldier. 
He was baptized as an adult and became a monk. It is understood 
that he was a kind man who led a quiet and simple life. 
The most famous legend of his life is that he once cut his
 cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save
 the beggar from dying of the cold. That night he dreamed that 
Jesus was wearing the half-cloak Martin had given away.
 Martin heard Jesus say to the angels: "Here is Martin, the Roman
 soldier who is not baptised; he has clothed me."
