    I remember my first Santa Con, my wife and I arrived in NYC for the day and we noticed an awful lot of Santas on the train. Grand Central Station was full of Santas and the subway we got on was PACKED with Santas. You have not had a proper NYC subway experience until you've been packed in a subway car with Santas chanting "SANTA RIDES THE SIX! SANTA RIDES THE SIX! HO HO HO HO HO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

    Santa Claus is a god in the world, one of his origins is Odin (the drinking, Viking god, he is Odin), and he was trotted out in the Western World in order to spite Jesus Christ, because Christ-day was too much for the pagans, one of two major Christian holidays (the other being Easter). One of the reasons Santa comes down the chimney is because Odin also enters that way, and Odin also gave us the Yuletide ham, as part of ancient Winter Solstice celebrations. If you want wild drink, sex, and fun on Santa Claus day, that is Odin worship, and many people do this, where it is about what you can get, not about giving in goodwill.

    I still enjoy the show for its entertainment value, but it can't be trusted when it comes to factual reporting. I remember them making quite a few false claims in the "Medical Bias" episode that really shocked me. Saying that there "obviously aren't" physical differences between the races is not only ignorant, but dangerous. I thought we could trust this show, but clearly we can't. And while some people might say, "But they only made that one mistake". Maybe, that we know of. That's the thing with reporting. Either you can trust them completely, or not at all. If they lied/misinformed to you once, there's no way tell if they are doing it about other things as well. If a GOOD journalist makes a mistake, they print a redaction to make sure everyone knows. But this show has made mistakes and never addresses them.

    The early Santas all thank you for this public service announcement, John. what its become bears little resemblance to what it originally was, and the novelty wore off in the previous century. Nothings more boring than uncreative mayhem.

    I have to start this off by saying I am not a Scientologist! But to the people saying it is nothing more than a cult which should be outlawed, every religion that there ever was started out as a cult. A cult is a relatively small group of people with similar beliefs, even Christianity was referred to as a cult by the Romans! Who are we to decide what people can and can not think? After all the first Europeans to settle in what would become The United States did so for the reason of freedom of religion, our freedom to choose what we believe instead of being told the the establishment is a huge part of our way of life, it defines us as a country a “melting pot” of different races, cultures, sexualities and religions. We are strong because we are different, yet accepting of each other. wow that was a rant but where is Shelly tho
