nancy - The French city of Nancy has decided to remove three large public Sinterklaas celebrations. The decision is a result of the attacks in Paris ten days ago. That's mayor Laurent Hénart announced Monday, the newspaper Le Figaro.
Two events on December 4 and the big Sinterklaas parade a day later will not. The three parties are the most important annual events in Nancy. The organization expected this year approximately 140 000 visitors. The decision was taken in consultation with the department Meurthe-et-Moselle.
Sinterklaas is in north-eastern France almost exactly like our saintly man, just because he does not ride on a white horse, but he takes them a donkey. His companion is a black body makeup or not Peter, but Daddy Fouettard, one dressed in black bogeyman with a bat.
