This week's throwdown is entirely different from any other that we've offered so far. Saturday was December 5th, when Sinterklaas's arrival from Spain is celebrated in The Netherlands, the land of my childhood. His companion, Swarte Piet helps Sinterklaas distribute toys for the good children and lumps of coal for the bad children. In your opinion, which of Jane's characters deserve to receive a lump of coal? You may choose as many characters as you like, and you may choose daily. We will announce the winner of this dubious present next week.
