    I'm pretty sure Santa Claus shows up somewhere between 7:00 and 11:59 pm on December 24th but don't quote me.

    Cookies and milk might guarantee a visit.

    And Johnny Walker Black.

    You read my mind again, I was wondering if any resorts had X-Mas decorations up yet. I love walking thru checking them all out and of course taking pictures.

    Unfortunately, Sinter Klaus and Black Piet aren't celebrated in the united states, so evidently not enough people know of the tradition.
    Yule celebrations are held at different times due to differing cultures.
    This one is held on St. Nicholas' Day, which falls (in Europe and European influenced countries) on December 5th.
    Traditionally, that's when the boat hits the harbour.
    It was that weekend last year when the boat came in and the parade wound through town.
    Likely the same this year.
    SOME traditions have to remain.... or so one would hope.
