    Did you know that Vancouver was actually named after a small town in Drenthe, the Netherlands? (It's actually where I live haha) The people who discovered (I believe) Vancouver, came from the family Van Coevorden that lived in the small town Coevorden. In the centre of Vancouver is a small castle which is actually a 1:3 replica of our castle here in Coevorden.

    I was in Edam last summer. The cheese is wonderful. I was told by one of employees in the shop there, that the Edam cheese we receive in Canada and other countries is actually not from Edam, but from a factory in northern Netherlands and they call it Edam cheese. It also has a big difference in taste, I was told as well. Great video, thanks!

    the sooth story was told to me when i was a kid (im 30 now), and I guess it's still told today. The older story behind Sinterklaas, was of Saint Nicolas who saved slaves, freed from their shackles they choose to help the man who saved them. He's actually an historical character who did something unheard of back in the day.

    Sinterklaas (St. Nicolaas) is more a childrens holiday upon age of 8. But its widely celibrated in the whole country. Christmas is more a family and friends time, having a huge diner party or something like. And people should stop yelling the standard racist thing. Even if it is racist, it positive racism. The children are more then happy to see "blackface" bringing them all the gifts year and year again. The first time i get a (pleasant) gifts of a real black person has still to come!

    If Canada and The Netherlands start burning at the same time , The Netherlands will be burned out earlier .
    Canada is situated on higher ground , The Netherlands is low . Yet the Dutch have found a way to stay high , Canadians still have to find a way to get down .

    Actually Sinterklaas arrives somewhere in November and he leaves on December 5th or 6th. The 5th of december is "pakjesavond" or "present evening" in English. Christmas is a whole different thing.

    I think overall Sinterklaas is more popular among families with small children, and the older the family gets the more popular Christmas becomes.

    In my family we always elaborately decorate for Christmas and have Christmas music playlists on all day, but we only get presents with Sinterklaas.

    santaclaus and Sinterklaas are different from each other. The most children in The Netherlands do believe in sinterklaas but not really the santaclaus we have chrismas to but it isnt that big.

    Also you should not forget Groningen, which also uses Low saxon, a type of german! Zeeland has a lot of Flemish influence, so French may be used there too and in Limburg they also speak Greman! English is indeed everywhere but it is very hit and miss, some people live around english products, adverts, music and signs but may not know any English.

    Santa Claus is Made out of sinterklaas en father christmas when the dutch came to the united states they kept there traditions and mixed them with the english

  • Reply randar1969 April 22, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    Sinterklaas is more there for children then for adults… As far as being racist i never experienced it as such zwarte piet does translate to black pete but the 2 have not a common ground at all. As far as for kids those black painted people throw candy around so they all love them and couldn't care less if they are black white or purple or whatever skincolor. That being said it's still is a bit racist because it's so old and over an hundred years ago racism was just the norm. Then again it's giving kids presents and candy and a long tradition… Should they adjust? well that depends on who you are asking some strong opinions for example some people say it's a black painted dude giving candy to kids and making them happy if anything children will think black people are cool. other people say red lips golden earrings is reminding everyone what slavery is about and is pure racism…

    Santa was based on Sinterklaas = Nicolas from Myra > Saint Nicolas > Santa Claus. He was a Turkish Bishop who cared for children and gave them presents and such.
    It's an old European story that got "Americanised" which caused the original story to be unknown among a lot of people.

    Santa is real, or at least was. He didn't fly in a reindeer pulled sled, however.

    Sinterklaas arives earlyer, somewhere in november. 5th of december is what we call "pakjesavond" (meaning presentevening), then we open the presents. Christmas is a separate holiday and has nothing to do with Sinterklaas. Also the black face is not really accepted anymore, the one half wants it to stay, the other half thinks it is racist. Its a big discussion!
