Thanks for your comment. Yes, I was born in Houten, near Utrecht in The Netherlands. My father comes from Indonesia. My mother is Dutch.

We celebrate it every year. Because of the unrest I am rethinking of Black Piet here in The Netherlands. And maybe comments from others are helpful to get more inside information from others.

Yes, we celebrate St. Maarten as well. Only not that much than that my kids are ringing the doorbells and asking for candy. Also on the 11th of November.

Thanks again.
