     Laura sent along a very interesting article (via Collectors
Weekly) called "Will The Real Santa Claus Please Stand Up?" It touches on some of our older blog entries (such as the Belsnickel and the Haddon Sundblom Santa) and has some fascinating information you may not have heard of before:

     Continuing our historical bent is this article from Discovery News, all about the origins and changes over time of Elves. Entitled "The Strange History of Santa's Little Helpers", it covers a lot of ground in only two pages. Go see!

     We end today with some gorgeous photos (via The Artery website) of "Amazing Christmas Celebrations Around the World." From Australia to Poland, there are exotic celebrations of all kinds going on this time of year ... and great shots to commemorate them.
