    Sinterklaasfeest in Holland

    [​IMG]

    Tomas Lindstedt: Fantastic picture! I have a couple of Dutch friends and we talked about Sinterklaas.
    Is it true that if you have not been a kind child, Sinterklaas helper black pete will send them to spain?!
    What on earth is so horribel with spain haha. In Sweden we pay a lot to get there every summer and even buy homes haha. Is this wayback tradition from the colony time maybe?.
    Would be fantastic to hear more.


    Marjan Lebesque @Tomas Lindstedt: check wikipedia Zwarte Piet . Yes, that's true, children should be kind..if not Zwarte Piet puts them in a big bag en takes them on the boat back to Spain. No problem for adults but for little children enough to behave nice so they will receive presents. Tomorrow Sint and Piet are going back to Madrid by boat.

    That's the idea, lots of driving the Z, but he can get at least two in the boot as well.
    Better be careful here, as 'the political correct' over here are trying to ban 'Black Pete' and before you know it, they will be calling Santa a pedophile......and this is in a country that had, in 2006, the PNVD.
    Widely known as the "pedophile" party, caused a stir in May when the group announced on a newly-registered official website its goal of lowering the legal age of sexual consent from 16 to 12 and ultimately scrapping the age requirement altogether.

    That Photo is so cool! He is the guy (Sinterklaas) who gave the new rear window to me on the 5th of December. I never figured out how he can be at so many places at the same time...

    He did not bring me Jack s***.
    Good to see that you got the rear window in, even though it was a PITA to fit and that post of yours has put me off the idea of ever trying to do it.:wideyed:
    By the way, you can take that off your wish list now.
    I cant remember if it was mentioned before, but a chap on here makes and sells the stone guards.
