Sinterklaas (Santa Claus)

SinterklaasZwarte Piet
Yes, today is the 5th of December and yes this is traditional our “Sinterklaas Feest”. A Dutch childrens party where gifts and rhymes are exchanged. I understand this year Sinterklaas sales still topped over Christmas in the Netherlands, hard to explain to the folks over here in the US.I can give a great explanation to all of you about Sinterklaas but the best thing is to read this article on Wikipedia about it, which actually hold some new info I did not know about. The only thing is that your Santa Claus originates from the Dutch Sinterklaas feest…so again something Dutch has influenced a big cultural celebration in the USA!
