Zwarte Piet (Black Peter) - These are among the many Christmas traditions...
These are among the many Christmas traditions here, but much more remarkable is that Sinterklaas Sinterklaas is always accompanied by one or more dark-complexioned dark-complexioned dark-complexioned helpers known as Zwarte Piet, or Black Peter. Black Peter has for centuries terrified terrified Dutch children as the ultimate ultimate boogeyman of nightmares and parental threats. He is Sinterklaas' dark alter ego, his enforcer and his bagman.
