These last few years the event of Sinterklaas arriving in Holland has become the major issue of a discussion about racism.
Black Pete, Cheese Pete, no Pete at all; it doesn't seem to matter any more. Nowadays we can hear Christmas Carols from the day good old Sinterklaas arrives. Well done folks. Put away your red tabard Sinterklaas. There's no place for you in our modern society any more...

Dutch news programme RTL Nieuws showed a video last night in which inhabitants say it will take about a hundred years before the forest will be restored.

But late at night, when I'm walking the dog, I walk underneath the trees. Every now and then I stand still (if the dog lets me...) and I look through the tree tops, where only starlight seems to be shining through.

I guess instead of commemorating the end of war; all those politicians who gathered in Paris yesterday, were commemorating humanity's incompetence to live together in harmony. A tribute to the lack of civilization.
