The holidays in The Hague such as Sint Nicolaas and Christmas will take place in a different way and it will have a different meaning this year.

Make the jigsaw puzzle of The Hague

A nice tradition with the family is making a Christmas puzzle together. We have a beautiful winter photo of the Noordeinde Palace in The Hague all ready for you here. Print it out and stick it on a piece of sturdy cardboard. Grab a pair of sharp scissors, cut out the pieces and voila you have your own puzzle of 150 pieces! For the real hobbyists among us, stick it on a piece of thin plywood, grab, borrow or buy a jigsaw and saw the pieces neatly out.

Send us a nice photo via #thisisthehague of your puzzle qualities.

Make Haagse Bluf yourself

Try making your own version of the Haagse Bluf recipe (a delicious dessert). The website the Dutch table contains a large number of Dutch recipes. Share your opinion at #thisisthehague and explain why this is the best version.

Make a shell box 

With 11 km's of coastline, The Hague is unique! Naturally, it is wonderful to get a breath of fresh air on the coast, but this time do not blow your nose in the wind, but look at what can be found in the sand. Collect shells, rinse them well at home, look for a (cigar) box, take the hobby glue and make a nice Christmas box. Nice idea: spray the shells in gold or silver for the true Christmas look!
