Here comes Santa Clause…and Black Pete.

A few weeks ago someone from the Netherlands sent me this postcard.  The writing on the back of the card says…

This card shows you Sinterklaas.  He gives every child presents at this birthday on December the 5th.  His assistant Black Pete helps him.  On the picture Black Pete throws pepernoten at the children which is some kind of candy.  Santa Clause is the American version of this story.

Sinterklaas and Black Pete.

You can read more about Black Pete here.    Black Pete looks rather happy to be pelting the children with hard candy!
