Sinterklaas is a holiday celebrated in the Netherlands on 5 December, the eve of the feast day of St. Nicholas (6 December), and in Flanders on 6 December, where presents are given, in particular to children. Adults tend to give eachother tongue in cheek gifts that are hidden in home made creations, often referring to some 'mistake' that the receiver made earlier in the year. The 'surprise' is accompanied by a poem, that ridicules the receiver of the gift. The term also refers to Saint Nicholas himself, especially the person dressed as such for the festivities.
