May the Yule be with you! As you can see, we’ve decked the halls here on the site so it’s as eye-woundingly festive as possible! Yay!

As a kid who didn’t know better, every time I saw one of those old world depictions of Santa I never really knew what to think. It always just seemed like some dude who was trying to cosplay Santa, but couldn’t really put an accurate costume together so they improvised at a secondhand store for wizards. Later of course I learned that the Santa I knew was just a (relatively) recent design, more or less created by Coca-Cola. That always amazed me. Strange how much cultural influence a soda company has.
