Tomorrow, my post combines the history of St. Nicholas/Santa Claus with some rather revolutionary (or perhaps anti-revolutionary, since it's more about getting back to the way things were than making something totally new) thoughts on Christmas.
Today, I'm working hard to get my manuscript to the finish line. I won't get there today, but I only have 10 scenes to go, and I need to dedicate as much time as possible to it.
So...no straight historical post today. ;-) But do drop by tomorrow. If you're anything like me, you have some ideas about Santa Claus that look more at the jolly old elf than who St. Nicholas really was and where our traditions come from. When I studied it out, I was amazed to realize how we've taken one of the most noble traditions and warped it. And I think you will be too.
See you tomorrow!
