*Subject:* [FairfieldLife] How to tell you're in Leiden on a Sunday afternoon in November

*/First, get out and take a walk or a bike ride. If you stay inside, you could be anywhere, right?/*
*/
/*
*/Now that you're out, do you see gangs of brightly dressed people in black face makeup walking around? Hundreds of them? OK, you're in Leiden./*
*/
/*
*/For those of you who have never experienced the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas and his Zwarte Piet companions, it sounds kinda weird. And it probably is, but the blackface has been part of the tradition since medieval periods, and people aren't about to change it now, even though there have been protests about it for "racist" reasons./*
*/
/*
*/Anyway, it's a lot of fun. Sinterklaas himself arrived yesterday a boat, while thousands of parents and their kids cheered his arrival. The Zwarte Piets are his helpers, sorta like elves but with more clought. If a kid has been good, the Zwarte Piets give them a pepper cookie. If they've been bad, theoretically the Zwarte Piets get to throw the kid into a big sack and take him off to Spain. Don't ask me what happens to the bad kids once they get there...I've never wanted to know./*
