That Theatre Company

As it is now a well-kept tradition in my family, we went with everybody to the newest play of That Theatre Company in Krudttoenden. The performance of this evening was two short plays written by Harold Pinter (The Dumb Waiter and The Lover). I did not know Harold Pinter before, but maybe I should look into his works. Apart from being entertaining, the plays had lots of interesting elements concerning communication, both in terms of body language and the verbal communication of the actors.

There is a traditional Dutch type of cake or cookie called Speculaas. It is usually served and eaten by old and young around the festivities of Sinterklaas (Dec 5th). However, the supermarkets start promoting and selling speculaas along with all of the traditional Sinterklaas and christmas candy already now - in September!
I understand that Sinterklaas is earlier than christmas, and the real enthusiasts would like to start preparations and celebrations early, but three months of eating Speculaas???
