Sinterklaas is known as the friendly saint. He is a kind and wise old man with a white beard, wears a traditional white Bishop's robe and red mitre and holds a staff. He and his assistant, Zwarte Piet, carry a bag with candy for nice children. Sinterklaas rides a white horse and Zwarte Piet delivers the gifts down the chimney. Children leave drawings in their shoes for Sinterklaas and a carrot for his horse.

Good children from Holland and the Netherlands get a visit from Sinterklaas.
