Every year the children of Aruba, which is located on the Caribbean Sea north to Paraguaná, Venezuela peninsula, celebrate Saint Nicolas (in Dutch Sinterklaas) holiday.
The main event is held on Oranjestad harbor where the island’s children wait for Saint Nicolas boat that arrive from the sea with his companion Black Peter (Zwarte Pieten).
According to tradition, the saint and his companion rise from the sea, distributing gifts and sweets to children who are good all year round.
Several days before the arrival of the saint, the children place their shoes outside the house hoping that on the next morning they’ll find St. Nicholas gifts.
During the feast day which is always on December 5th various events for children are held.
