Description

Everybody in the Netherlands knows what December 5 is. Particularly for children, it’s a very exciting evening. St. Nicholas, an elderly bishop from Spain, will have arrived in the Netherlands a few weeks earlier aboard a steamship crammed with presents. On December 5, he visits all children who have been good in the past year to give them presents. Some of the parcels come with a small poem. Story sounds familiar? Could well be. Santa Claus, much loved by American kids, picked up a few tips from his Dutch colleague.
