Thread Name: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
Subject: RE: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
Santa Claus as wild man...well, I just watched one of my favorite movies, "Trading Places," and Dan Ackroyd does a pretty good version of just that!

(Many scenes in the movie were filmed in the area around Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, where I lived when I was a pediatrics resident. And one of the buildings that appears prominently in one of the early scenes is the Curtis Institute of Music--see, it's a musical thread after all!)
