Modern scientific discoveries have reduced Santa to an amorphous, non-interventionist, gap-dwelling entity – bearing increasingly little resemblence to Coca-Cola’s original vision – whose sole purpose seems to be to deceive or bribe people into following an authoritative set of rules, rather than developing their own robust, internalized sense of morality, based on rational ideals. It’s time to let it go, kids.

Anyway, I hope you all had a merry winter solstice festival, especially if like me you live in the southern hemisphere and thus celebrated it in summer. Those pagan memes sure have come a long way.
