AFRICANGLOBE - In December the Netherlands' version of Christmas, Sinterklaas, is welcomed with Santa Claus, chocolate, presents and... blacked up ‘elves’. According to the original tale, ‘Black Pete’ acts as Santa Claus’s slave and does his dirty work. Since the 1850s, Dutch people have painted themselves black, worn curly wigs, donned red santa outfits and overdrawn their lips to create the black caricature on Sinterklaas. He is feared by Dutch children, who are told that he will kidnap or hit naughty children, while good children will get treats from Santa.
