    Well done. Probably much the same way Jesus and his tales came about.

    Also, Sinterklaas comes on 6th December... (I lived in Holland for 8 years) and has a flock of black-face slaves following him which is both hilarious and horrifically racist when you see it for the first time.

    When I was a kid (notice my age- I`m not that old) Santa brought 1 present to each girl and boy... today they get 10 or more and an equal number from mom and dad... crazy poo

    Father Christmas is my new santa. I`m tossing out all my jolly red dude decor (but keeping the reindeer. Nobody takes my reindeer!). I see no downsides:
    1. Likes wine (check)
    2. Likes a good feast (check)
    3. Loves to party (check)
    4. Couldn`t give a Eff about kids (check)
    5. Has respect for nature (check)
    5. Pagan (and therefore the Christians can`t snicker and act smug when they see you enjoying it, as if by liking a fat dude with reindeer somehow equals acknowledging their religion as somehow "true". Ugh...)(check)

    @Davymid...8 years? You should`ve paid more attention!! He arrives three weekends prior to the 5th of December (pakjesavond = presents-evening)and leaves on the 6th :)

    I haven`t watched the video yet, but I`m betting on there being fertility symbols or rituals involved.

    Bummer, I was wrong. Wrong solstice for fertility stuff, maybe.

    @HalfPintRoo - You`re only a few years older than me but that wasn`t true for me or any of my friends. I`m guessing it was only a tradition for your family.

    Anyway, cute video :P
