You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why! Sinterklaas is coming to town! Sinterklaas? Don’t you mean Santa Claus? Well the name Santa Claus actually came from the Dutch name for St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas. He wears his big red coat and drives his reindeer-drawn sleigh, but here’s something you probably didn’t know; Sinterklaas is believed to be a descendant of Thor! This means that Santa Claus is part Scandinavian god! Wow, that explains the whole around-the world-in-one-night-thing.
