‘Zwarte Piet’ having a break
To appreciate this picture, we need to tell you a bit about the Dutch tradition to celebrate Sinterklaas aka The Good Holy Man: Following the folklore of the Netherlands and of Belgium, Sinterklaas comes with his friend Zwarte Piet (means Black Pete) to give sweets and presents to all children that have behaved well. If you are keen to know more, check wikipedia. The celebration of Sinterklaas takes place on the evening of 5 December in Holland, and on the morning of 6 December in Belgium. As you can see Zwarte Piet is having a break next to his bike. Is he waiting for a metro/train to go to Belgium?
We hope the Belgian government will get some sweet candy too!
