On Tuesday, Sinterklaas News announced how this year, the new horse of Sinterklaas will deliver all parcels to the right addresses. Among other things, the producers of the NPO programme use Google Street View for this.
In the Sinterklaas News, the new horse was presented to Saint Nicholas. Amerigo has retired; Ozosnel is his successor. The new white horse does not yet know where everyone lives, but something has been invented for that.
Presenter Dieuwertje Blok:
“‘You can fill in your name and address on the Sinterklaas News website. We will then contact Black Peter, the horse’s caretaker, and you will be given confirmation live, complete with your name and a photo of your house, of the fact that Ozosnel knows where he needs to go’.
This year, Sinterklaas arrives in Apeldoorn. When Dieuwertje called Sinterklaas, the steamboat had not yet left. Sinterklaas travels namely by train to the Netherlands, because he has a new horse – Ozosnel – who is afraid of water.
