Saint Nicolas Day in Aruba
Santa's comes early to Oranjestad, Aruba. Each year, the man of the season – known locally as Sinterklaas – sails into the harbor all the way from Spain to the delight of Aruba's children who line up to watch. On Saint Nicolas Eve, children leave shoes outside their homes in hopes that gifts will be left during the night. Keep your eyes peeled for Saint Nicolas on his white horse parading through the streets.
