    American Christmas is kinda weird to us Europeans though. I mean, we do get gifts and decorate and stuff, and even though I’m not religious, that’s not what Christmas was about though, the presents. Christmas used to be about religion and Jesus and what not, so it’s really American Christmas that has it all ‘wrong’. Just saying🤷‍♀️

    I am from Belgium and I don’t think you should talk like that about another country just because of a few facts, dutch people sometimes also think that americans are a Little weird because they’re different from us but we don’t talk about them like that and the santa Claus thing seems too much for children but we don’t tell the Story like that, we tell it in a less mean way. Just my opinion

    Oh boy, she avoided mentioning zwarte piet, Sinterklaas helper, usually is portrayed by wearing blackface. That would make the Americans go into crazy rage lol. Also, she knows next to nothing about the language and the culture. How the language sounds is nothing like what they are trying to imitate. Fun fact, Dutch, for an English speaker is considered one of the easiest languages to learn, it's the closest non English language to English there is and excludes the hard conjugations of German.

    this video is funny, but still they have to respect the European culture, it's not cause they celebrate a holiday one way that everyone has to celebrate it the same way like Americans do. Like Christina said, we have Sinterklaas and that is celebrated like Americans celebrate Santa Claus.

    Conan is basically confirming the prejudice that we might have of the USA citizens being completely ignorant of what’s going on in the rest of the world. He is acting like the stupid kid who thjnks hè is the class hero. Santa Claus is a commercialised variation of our (much older) Dutch Sinterklaas (who is unrelated to Christmas). The fact that we try to give some meaning to Christmas , other than eating, drinking and spending makes Dutch Christmases actually more meaningful . And the stupid Russian/German accent is irritating like hell. All of a sudden much more respect for Jay Leno 😏

    My daughers grow up bilingual, English mother - Dutch father. But we don't know that song wha she told the people. And does the Americans know, that Santa claus was originated from the Dutch celibration of Sinterklaas? And NO you Americans Don't think that Europe have common cultures en traditions. That make Europe so interesting.

    Santa Claus is litteraly inspired by sinterklaas and also sinterklaas lives in Spain so you practically get to go him with him. I can't be the own one though that is annoyed by the ignorance that guy is showing cuz litteraly non of what he said is true.

    Never heard of the song Christina! I am Dutch. If you really want to get to know your husband I would advise you to learn at least some Dutch. I do not get why Conan tries to imitate 'Danish' and tells us he thinks its Dutch. It is a bit insulting. But then again we love to mock your president... Zwarte piet a little elf?! WTF! He is not an Elf! He is a person from the South of Spain (with African origin) and he is a servant. Which is stirring up a lot of controversy in our country each early December because it looks quite racist. And yes our Sinterklaas is about as lame as your Santa Claus. Sinterklaas is just a fairy tale they use to tell children to put the fear into them all year just to make up for bad parenting skills if you ask me. But then again I am not a parent...

    Ze heeft haar rol van Kelly Bundy niet los kunnen laten.
    Die presentator weet dat flink zichtbaar te maken, zonder dat ze dit door heeft.
    Hij moet zich na de uitzending toch helemaal rot hebben gelachen. (wellicht aan de beademing gegaan met anti-lachgas).
    Ze is geen wetenschappelijk bewijs voor de evolutietheorie. Vraag me af hoe ze zal zijn als ze op latere leeftijd Alzheimer krijgt.
    Nu al erg triest voor haar schoonfamilie.

  • Arthur Lecomte

    In the Netherlands we have a kind of funny dark comedy and it was at one time very popular in songs. The song she's talking about is "De Gezusters Kamarazov" (The Sisters Karamazov), a play on the book by Dostojewski, by Drs. P. Another example is "Dodenrit" (Death Ride), by the same singer. It's about a Russian family on their way to Omsk, but they get chased by wolves, so they have to throw their children off the troika to keep the wolves away. They start with the least talented one, but the wolves keep coming back, so they have to keep throwing their children off. Drs. P was inspired by Louis Davids, who sang songs about all day themes, but with funny dark undertones. There's one example named "De Begrafenis van Ome Manus" (The Burial of Uncle Manus). In this song a rich man has died, but he has many descendants who start to kill each other over the heritage. Another example is "Weekend in Scheveningen", where the chorus is about happy like "Yeah, we're going to the beach in Scheveningen. The sky is blue, the sea is warm in Scheveningen!", but in the verses the family irritate each other and they start beating each other to death. It may be strange to some people, but I think it's funny as hell.
