merry christmas, y'all.
did you know that contrary to popular belief, coca-cola did NOT invent the red sporting santa that we've all become so familiar with? instead, the finger of blame can be leveled at thomas nast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Nast), an american cartoonist who transformed him into the jolly little fat man we've all come to know and love. also, there are numerous links between mr clause and the norse god odin but those have pretty much been brushed under the carpet since the ye olde christians felt that smacked of paganism.
