Ah, American Veterans Day.

In the Netherlands it's Sint-Maarten today:
Quote:
Sint-Maarten (St. Martin's Day) is a popular children's feast day in many parts of the Netherlands. Typically, in the early winter evening of November 11, small groups of children can be heard going up and down the street singing songs and reciting poems, armed with lit lanterns. As a reward they are given sweet treats, in a custom similar to American Halloween, but not quite as commercial.
