Very Odin-ish. Which makes sense since Santa is partially based off of Odin.


Santa the Red, though? Badass.

Erm. No? Santa is based on Saint Nicholas and "designed" by Coca Cola. And nothing else.

Saint Nick was part of it, but there were multiple sources.

Odin's bit was soaring through the sky around Yuletime on his flying horse.

Sound familiar?

There was also the Dutch gift-giver, Sinterklaas, and the German gift-giver, Christrkindl (Kris Kringle), as well as the British Father Christmas. They all fused together over the centuries to become the one Santa we know today.

david foster's carol of the bells would match this nicely.

I have always thought an epic, high fantasy Santa Claus novel would sell, and this picture only makes me believe that even more.

Did anyone else look at this and hear the Santa song from Invader Zim in their head? XP
