A brief history of Santa Claus

My brother PJ linked this YouTube video on Facebook. I thought I would upload it on Vraie Fiction. It is a bit short, but it is a nice account of the history of Santa Claus. It shows very well its primitive, Pagan roots and explains that the jolly old man was not invented by Coca Cola (his background is much older and much more complex than a publicity campaign). I am very much into the Pagan roots of Christmas, Celtic and Norse especially, so I enjoyed it a lot. I hope you do too.
