    4769-005w Date last Saturday.

    Name in Holland
    "Sinterklaas"
    Coming every year at his birthday to Holland.
    His workers are Black cause of delivering presents to the young ones.
    They dump the presents while it is night.
    Noisy is the horse of Sinterklaas on the roofs of the houses.
    the "Pieten" go down the chimmey with the parcels
    faces black when they pop out after that.

    It is very scary while being young.
    because in case of not having been nice and good in the last year.
    Sinterklaas can change his mind.

    It is most his workers
    "Pieten" is the name in Dutch
    that are attractive to me like crazy.
    While the scary moments are still there in my senses.

    The whole thing is lovely
    and pure Dutch.

      Yep. That's right. But I missed the story about shoes in front of the chimney. And then singing a Saint-song. If they heared you, you will have a present in your shoe the next morning when you wake up.
