Sinterklaas!  But he and Swaarte Piet didn't come to our house.  We were Jewish.  And Hanukah was only a minor holiday for us.  Passover and Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were the major holidays.  Oh yes, first The King's. and then in 1953, The Queen's birthdays were also very important (both in Canada and Holland).   Grin

Actually, when I was young, quite a lot of people in Canada were of British origin (many from only 5-6 generations or less in the country.  Nova Scotia, the English-speaking half of the people in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland(which was still part of Britain, and NOT part of Canada until 1949), and Victoria in BC called him "Father Christmas".  Other English speaking recent immigrants called him "Santa Claus" sometimes, because of domination of US media and culture.  Nowadays, Santa Claus is more popular, I suppose.  The French Canadians in Quebec,Ontario, New Brunswick and Manitoba call him "Per Noel".
