It turned out the gift-wrapped speed cameras were a PR stunt of Go Fast beverages. They gift-wrapped 250 speed cameras throughout the country.

It's a good joke though. Even the police thought that it was funny

His "helpers" It's a Dutch tradition, as well in a few other countries. We don't usually exchange gifts at Christmas, but at December 5th (Sinterklaas). As you may have guessed, Sinterklaas is similar to Santa Claus. I prefer Santa Claus though.

Sinterklaas is based on St. Nicholas from Myra. Sinterklaas is celebrate in the Netherlands since the medievil times.

Then the Dutch settlers brought Sinterklaas and Oliebollen (a sweet, mainly eaten in December) to New Amsterdam. And from there a few hondred years later Sinterklaas became Santa Claus and the Oliebollen became donuts. And Coca Cola made Santa a commercial thing, and now the half world is celebrating Santa.

Well that explains why my Dutch student (actually living in Germany and going to a German school) was so disappointed that there were no presents today.

From today the Amber Alert is introduced on the Dutch Highways. Amber Alert is a warningsystem copied from the USA, it warns you via sms, internet and radio when a child is kidnapped. Now the Amber Alert can be showed on the trafficdisplays as wel.
