Thread Name: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
Subject: RE: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
I grew up in the States. My grandfather was born in Denmark. Since my dad was Native, all of our Christmas traditions were handed down from the European side. We even celebrated the Lucia Bride festival. My cousins were blonde, blue-eyed, virginal brides with wreathes of candles around their heads. I was very envious. I was a little too dark to join the procession but it was a beautiful ceremony.
