St. Nicolas is Celebrated in the French-speaking part of Belgium

Rudy Welvaert wrote to me,

“…in the French speaking part of Belgium, La Wallonie (Wallonia), the children are waiting for Saint Nicolas to bring them sweets and presents in the night of the 5th to the 6th of December. Here is a traditional Saint-Nicolas song in French, with its English translation.”

Saint Nicolas, Patron des écoliers

Saint Nicolas, patron des écoliers,
Apporte-moi du sucre dans mon petit panier.
Je serai toujours sage comme un petit mouton,
Je dirai mes prières pour avoir des bonbons.
Venez, venez Saint Nicolas!
Venez, venez Saint Nicolas!
Venez!
Venez!
Venez Saint Nicolas!
Tralala!

Saint Nicolas, Patron Saint of School Kids

Saint Nicolas, patron saint of school kids,
Bring me some sugar for my basket.
I’ll will always be good like a little lamb,
I always say my prayers, to get sweets.
Come, come Saint Nicolas!
Come, come Saint Nicolas!
Come!
Come!
Come Saint Nicolas!
Tralala!

Many thanks to Rudy Welvaert for sending me this song.
