A bear's Martinmas


'Sint Maarten en het beertje'
by Antonie Schneider, illustrated by Maja Dusikova

Every year on November 11th there is a Saint Martin's Procession 
in the town. Marieke and her teddy bear participate in the celebrations 
with their lanterns and they sing along with the other children. They see the good Saint 
Martin sharing his cloak with a cold, poor man. Suddenly a small boy begins to cry. 
He has lost his lantern. Then Sint Maarten looks at the small teddy bear and the teddy 
bear understands the message and gives his lantern to the boy. Fortunately, 
Marieke still have her lantern and she shares it with her teddy bear
