Don't say Santa was evil, you'll end up on his naughty list!

Anyway, the links with paganism are most likely to be because of similarities between Santa and the Norse God 'Odin' who had a flying horse, a bit like Santa with his flying reindeer.

The idea that Santa was originally green is also questionable:-

I really hope saying this helps keep me in his good books... thumbsup

Dont we all, it just shows how a clever piece of marketing can become so global and can last for so long.
