Lesson #1613 - Christmas Folklore, Part II
There have been attempts to change the character of Zwarte Piet in recent years, but what's wrong with tradition? If that's the way something has always been, that's the way it should be, right? God forbid we ever think any differently about anything.
I hope you're enjoying this trip through Christmas folklore as much as I am. Honestly, I'm finding this all completely fascinating. Perhaps tomorrow we'll discover that Santa Claus was originally portrayed as a character associated with drunkeness - oh, he was? How about that!
