I had a friend who is Dutch and I remember her telling me about "Zwarte Piet"... it's so racist. LOL

It's not his "sidekick" by the way, it's actually supposed to be his slave. lol

I heard of some of these versions of Santa. But my Santa is wonderful. He is the only guy I know who is willing to crawl down a chimney in the middle of a cold night leave me awesome gifts and asks for nothing but cookies and milk in return.
