we have Sinterklaas, who has an aid called black pete, he also brings gifts to young children, but leaves them in thear shoes in stead of their stockings. also Sinterklaas is hold on the 5th and 6th of december. SantaClaus, in the netherlands refered to as "de kerstman"/"christmas-man" is the person connected to Christmas and is hold on the 25th of december.

Trust me, I'm from the netherlands, and although I'm 40 years of age and considered a "non-believer", I do have my facts straight.
