  1. Santa is a weird mix of everything from paganism to commercialism, he's really evolved (or devolved depending on your view). Would be interesting to see what he looks like in another 200 years.
    Those cookies sound like tiny fruitcakes, I love fruitcake.

  2. I agree! It's so interesting!
    He isn't much different from culture to culture. I've learned so much from this Creepmas

  3. Yummy - these cookies sound great. Once creepmas is over, it will be time to start baking for that other holiday.
