    If I had a better grasp of the weather and the strength of the UV rays in North Pole, I'd have a better idea.

    Not here they do not.

    Which,of course, begs the question "Is Santa Claus a wino?"

    That's not true. Santa is not exclusive to Americans. Other cultures also have Santa. You are limiting your view of Santa to your own culture and upbringing. We could get technical here though and say that Saint Nicholas was actually Greek.

    Predecessor figures
    Saint Nicholas


    A 13th-century Egyptian depiction of St. Nicholas from Saint Catherine's Monastery, Sinai.
    Main article: Saint Nicholas

    Saint Nicholas of Myra was a 4th-century Greek Christian bishop of Myra (now Demre) in Lycia, a province of the Byzantine Anatolia, now in Turkey. Nicholas was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes.[7] He was very religious from an early age and devoted his life entirely to Christianity. In continental Europe (more precisely the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Germany) he is usually portrayed as a bearded bishop in canonical robes.

    Exclusive to American's? Where the **** do you come up with such that nonsense?

    You seem to be unaware of the actual figure.

    I keep mentioning Sinterklaas.
    Why do you think that is?
    He was created as a white man. You can not deny that, and you do not get to change that.

    Some people learn that the hard way.

    Actually a friend of mine is a professional chimney sweep. And he's just a really small dude. He's about 5 feet nothing and 105 pounds soaking wet. His small stature is great for his image as a chimney sweep but he wouldn't ever think of climbing down a chimney. He used to clean the chimney at my old house that had a huge fireplace every year. He says that he's cleaned thousands of chimney's and has never once tried to climb down inside a chimney. There's specialized equipment to do that nowadays.

    He doesn't look so Jolly. I have heard that Spain doesn't have Santa Clause. I hear that Spanish children are thrilled to see the Three Wise Men to share their Christmas wishes. Can anybody vouch for the accuracy of this?
