    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

    ´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.

    Santa Clause and Sinterklaas ARE NOT ONE AND THE SAME in the Netherlands and other countries. She is explaining it wrong. Sinterklaas is on the 6th of december (in Belgium, it depends on where you live). The 'elfe' she is talking about is not an elf. Zwartepiet is an assistant from Africa. Spain isn't a bad countr, it's where Sinterklaas lives so that's why he is taking you there when you are 'bad'.

    Okay, i'm from the netherlands, and sinterklaas is no demon! He is our santa claus! Ages ago parents did use to threat children, but now its a celebration of helping people! and we spend our Christmas volunteering for kids in Africa or make donations to charities! And above all, we spend it with our family and give each other presents! Its not about how big or expensive the present is, its about what it means! Christmas is our thanksgiving, we think about how lucky we are that we can live in good houses and have a job and family that cares about us! God bless!🙏🏽❤️ and btw, we invented aircrafts, wifi and lightbulbs so we aren't old fashion, okay? Stfu! Like if you agree! Like als je het ermee eens bent
