    In the Netherlands we also celebrate christmas and Santa Klaus is based of sinterklaas and Santa is called that way because americans can't say sinterklaas. You would only understand this holiday if you grew up with it.

    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.

    okay but WILD idea...learn dutch missy. You are in a relationship with a Dutch person. He knows your language and culture, why don't oyu know his? plain rude if you ask me.
    Also we have both Sinterklaas and christmad. Plus santa was based on Sinterklaas...and what's with the walnuts? we don't have them

  • Amber Gijsen

    Americans are so annoying towards other cultures and countries. Why can’t they do their research, they think that The Netherlands is still living in the 1800’s. And do your damn research about Santa Claus and Sinterklaas. We celebrate Santa Claus too. Uncultured swines

  • Colin Heeregrave
    Colin Heeregrave 3 months ago

    ´No Dutch in the house´. How about taking an interest in your husbands culture and learn Dutch too. Why would you ruin your childs opportunity to easily learn Dutch growing up. It could be a valuable asset later in life. Do you love basking in the glory of American pretentiousness that much?
    I´m not one to be offended, but this did it. Get your head out of your ass and mingle with the other countries, America. You are not better than us. Not in the slightest.
    I have a sense of humor, but this is just disrespectful AND not even funny.

    Santa Claus actually derives from Sinterklaas. It’s a Dutch/Belgian tradition that the settlers braught over to America. People there just started calling it Santa Claus because they couldn’t pronounce Sinterklaas correctly, so don’t get mad at us Conan.
