Transcript of Netherlands Christmas Traditions

Netherlands Christmas Traditions By: Adam Arrington In the Netherlands Santa is called Sinterklaas. He has a partner named Black Pete. Black Pete goes down chimneys and delivers the presents for him. On Dec. 6 they celebrate Sinterklaas day. On Sinterklaas day they put out their wooden shoes filled with hay for the Sinterklaas' horse. If they are lucky they wake up with their shoes filled with sweets. Christmas day is the same day as we have it on, Dec. 25. On Christmas they hide presents or make a present hunt. Doing this makes the Holiday more exciting. . "Christmas in Netherlands." Christmas in Netherlands: Around the World at Santa's Net.. Australian Media Pty Ltd..
