    There most certainly IS a Santa Claus (or Sinterklaas as he is historically known).  The guardian Saint of Children threw coins down the chimneys of poor families, to prevent them from prostituting their children (or so the story goes).

    When he died, they divided up his body and sent parts everywhere.  As they continue to do so.  Yup, even here on Long Island, New York.  We've got a piece of the action.

    So not only is Santa Claus real, he is everywhere and he is dead.  Puts new meaning into Santa Claus is watching you, now doesn't it.

    This is possible. :)

    "Sol expends a lot of energy moving south at that clip, and begins to become fatigued, eventual slowing down to almost a standstill to rest. Fearing the worst, during the rest many northern hemisphere cultures have developed rituals around December 20 to cheer it up and refresh it, hoping the adulation will cause it to travel north towards its admirers with some increasing vigor."

    You mean Santa Claus. I don't believe in superstition! There is no Father Christmas, no Santa Claus, and nothing will stop the Sun's march to the coordinate singularity! Doooom.... DooooooOOOOM!

    "Round here we have an arrangement where we meet together towards the end of the year and drink a good quantity of whisky. Perhaps on the rocks. That system has never failed to haul the sun back north in any previous year."

    I don't believe in this so-called "whisky" you speak of. It is a superstition! Another Santa Claus!! A fantasy created by the powers that be to keep the masses calm while the planet freezes solid (did I mention "Doom"?).
