These days, we celebrate "Sinterklaas" in the Netherlands and I believe in Belgium too. His birthday is on the 6th of December but lots of families celebrate his birthday today, because it is weekend. We get presents then and we have special cookies for this occasion: "speculaas" and "pepernoten". I think it's a lot like Santa Claus. It's a family occasion here in Holland.
