I believe in Sinterklaas

That's right, I believe in Sinterklaas. Who else would buy all those presents for Dutch kids this evening, december 5th..?

Some people believe Sint Nicolas is really Santa Claus, but I don't believe that for a minute. You couldn't fool any Dutch kid with this theory, they don't look anything alike. Sinterklaas isn't fat and doesn't drink Coca Cola!

Besides, comparing Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) with a reindeer doesn't do him justice, and frankly, I would consider it racist!

Luckily I'm not the only one, listen to CocoRosie with Good Friday.

I believe in Saint Nicolas, He's a different kind of Santa Claus... Exactly!

WELCOME BACK! Found your mothballed blog from last year recently. Totally my kind of holiday tuneage but of course the songs are gone... any way they could be reposted for a few weeks?

Was thrilled to see your RSS feed pop up on my homepage today. Keep up the great tradition!!
