My parents-in-law got this CD from my
husband and me Sinterklaas.
Then yesterday at my kids school on my way back to the car I heard an American mother who was passing by telling her kid: "... and within some days the real Santa Claus is arriving in the NL, with rendeers..." I laughed out loud. Pardon ? The "real Santa Claus" ??? How is it possible ? She is lucky enough to raise her kids in the Netherlands - where the real Nicolaas traditions began, right? And then she says the real one is still going to arrive ? I guess this kid will rebel when he grows up ! Or not ?
Now, seriously: sometimes I think it would be far better if Sinterklaas just merged with Santa Claus and arrived during X-mas. Let's make life simpler.
