Santaclaus was brought to the US by the Dutch hundreds of years ago. The man was actually called Sinterklaas and had not much to do with christmas. Like Santaclaus, our Sinterklaas brings presents to the kids. In Holland he comes by boat from spain en gets help from his black Petes, the guys on photo. 5 december is the day the kids get the presents. Thanx for the fun Photo Niels. Nice bike by the way!
