@HalfPintRoo - You`re only a few years older than me but that wasn`t true for me or any of my friends. I`m guessing it was only a tradition for your family.

Anyway, cute video :P

Bummer, I was wrong. Wrong solstice for fertility stuff, maybe.

I haven`t watched the video yet, but I`m betting on there being fertility symbols or rituals involved.

St. Nicholas is the patron saint of whores.
Really. Look it up.

Father Christmas is my new santa. I`m tossing out all my jolly red dude decor (but keeping the reindeer. Nobody takes my reindeer!). I see no downsides:
1. Likes wine (check)
2. Likes a good feast (check)
3. Loves to party (check)
4. Couldn`t give a Eff about kids (check)
5. Has respect for nature (check)
5. Pagan (and therefore the Christians can`t snicker and act smug when they see you enjoying it, as if by liking a fat dude with reindeer somehow equals acknowledging their religion as somehow "true". Ugh...)(check)

When I was a kid (notice my age- I`m not that old) Santa brought 1 present to each girl and boy... today they get 10 or more and an equal number from mom and dad... crazy poo

Also, Sinterklaas comes on 6th December... (I lived in Holland for 8 years) and has a flock of black-face slaves following him which is both hilarious and horrifically racist when you see it for the first time.

Well done. Probably much the same way Jesus and his tales came about.
