Fair use rationale for Image:DutchSinterklaas2005.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DutchSinterklaas2005.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

"merge"[edit]

Technically, since nothing on this page is referenced, we can "merge all referenced information" on this page by simply turning it into a redirect. If you want to add information to Wikipedia, the burden is on you to provide decent sources. If you fail to do that, your information will be removed, even if it happens to be correct. It isn't the job of others to figure out whether your information is correct. It is up to you to establish as much. --dab (𒁳) 12:06, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Arbitrary section headings[edit]

The section headings in this list seem rather arbitrary. They define neither useful geographical regions, nor groups of like traditions. Unless anyone objects, I'm proposing to re-group the entries based on similarity of tradition. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 13:54, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Actually, that turns out to be quite difficult as too many countries have multiple traditions. Probably the best approach will be to set out things in tabular form. I'll have a go over the next few days. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 18:01, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Now done. Should be easier to read and to maintain, but still needs sources. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 18:21, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Japan[edit]

サンタクロース has no any relation to Japan, it's just transliteration of Santa Claus from English. It's used used only for marketing and not related to usual people culture. Uncle Chimney is just some totally unknown nonsense. That "Bowler" is absolutely unreliable reference. --Rambalac (talk) 18:28, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Russia[edit]

There is no any "New Year Boy" in Russia, it's just some nonsense. --Rambalac (talk) 18:30, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
