Sint is a very impressive person, I know, I saw him when I was visiting Holland on a December 5th. He came right to Heidi's house to visit us. Sint fills shoes with goodies thoughout the season. He leaves yummy little ginger cookies. He comes to Holland on a boat from Spain, then rides his white horse. His helpers are Piets.
Feel free to hope on this blog and correct anything wrong Heidi. LOL. She has my password. I googled the following:

How is Sinterklaas celebrated in the Netherlands?
The name Sinterklaas comes from Sint Niklaas, which is a variation of Sint Nikolaas (Saint Nicholas).
On the evening of 5 December the children will sing special Sinterklaas songs. When the tension has built up sufficiently, a big sack or basket is brought into the home filled with presents for the children who have behaved themselves.
When I was there, the gifts were lowered from the roof of the house.
