Netherlands- Sinterklaas is St. Nicholas in the Netherlands. Dutch children put wooden shoes filled with hay and sugar for Sinterklaas' horse. Good children receive shoes full of sweet treats as a child we would sing to Sinterklaas.
In November, Sinterklaas travels from his home in Spain to the Netherlands, bringing presents and special treats for the children. He celebrates his birthday december and children get there treats and gifts.
