In Dordrecht - a city in Holland - parents were known to scare their children with the Lorrenboer (translation: Rag Farmer). Originally the Ragman was just an ordinary man, who went door-to-door with a big jute bag. He'd shout "Lorren! Lorren!" as he approached, and collected old clothes for a small amount of money. Similar to Zwarte Piet, parents turned this ordinary man into a Child Terror, by telling their children they would be sold to the Ragman, if they couldn't behave.
