Long time readers of this blog will have heard me wax poetic over the Lefferts House before. I am just a sucker for a good Historic House. I can't help it. So much old fashioned fun and none of the old fashioned plumbing.
Last weekend Lefferts House had a get-ready-for-winter festival.
Of course, the most important way to get ready for winter is to make and eat donuts ("oly cooks" That's right: donuts are, in fact, oily cakes).Next is to make and taste sauerkraut (to prevent scurvy, of course)Important, too, is candle making (long, dark nights ahead!)and quilt making (long, cold nights ahead!)But most important of all, is to greet Sinterklaas, who, in the Dutch tradition arrives on horseback and distributes clementines and gold coins.What historic house are you visiting?
