    OK, here we go, did find one Christmas pic
    Christmas dinner in 1979, my brother Bart and me (on the right)


    But here are the Sinterklaas pics
    In 1978, me on Sinterklaas' lap

    But the best pics are from 1980, a year too late for your project, but I'll share them anyway, you decide wether you want to use them or not
    The doorbell just rang, we're looking through the window and you can tell by my brother's face he's pretty excited

    We're looking at Sinterklaas and Black Pete and I still can't believe they're in my house. "Oh, the stories i will be telling at school tomorrow." My brother is just about peeing himself from excitement

    Sinterklaas takes out his book to see if we've been good little boys and if we deserve presents.

    Time enough for one last pic before they go to the next house.

    Oh, and before this turns into a racial thing, Black Pete isn't black because he's African-American, but because of the dirt from climbing down the chimnee

  6. I have a Christmas tale of tragedy involving an AHI Creature, but sadly, no pics to go with it.

    Thomas, does Black Pete have any relation in lore to the Russian Black Peter ?

    Or is the names just familiar ?

    BTW, I love Sinterklaas' outfit ...... He looks like the Pope

    Here's a couple photo's from Christmas 1977 or 1978, they're undated on the back so I'm not totally sure. Anyways, a couple of my favorites, but with a bowl cut, footy pj's and a brand new stretch how could they not be. Hope you can use these for your project Brian, I would be honored if they're included.

    I'm not sure, but they could be the same. I translated his Dutch name (Zwarte Piet) into English, but his official English name may be Black Peter
