6 jannewarie: Dreikeuninge
You may find singing children come to your door – they will be dressed as the three ‘kings’ and expect some sweets or fruit.
January first – start of a new year, another circle around the sun. Maybe this is why the Maastricht sweets for New Year are round; crispy, thin waffles, baked traditionally at home, in heavy cast iron. These days to be found at local bakers and supermarkets – enjoy!
