Four years ago I made a blog entry about one of my favorite Christmas commercials. That commercial was Santa Claus running full speed to a Target to get some last minute things. (Like a lot of people will be doing today, I imagine. ) Back then, I couldn't post its link from Youtube on BZP because Youtube videos weren't allowed on the site. But the times have changed, so now, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Running Santa Commercial that is still my favorite Christmas commercials out there.
A lesser-known aspect of the legend of Santa Claus is his periodic transformation into a werewolf. Once, way, way back during the 1600s, when superstition ran rampant, Claus- known in that time by the name of Saint Nicholas- was delivering presents on Christmas Eve. All was going well; he was running ahead of schedule, and took that extra time to have a quick rest on the outskirts of a small village, deep in the heart of the Scottish countryside. That was when it happened. All of a sudden, presumably enticed to attack by the smell of Claus' reindeer, a wolf sprang out of the darkness. Killing most of the reindeer, the wolf severely injured Claus, leaving him with a number of ugly scars along the left side of his body- and a curse that would last forever. Father Christmas had become a werewolf. Every thirteen years, from then on, he would transform whilst in the midst of delivering presents on Christmas Eve, slaughtering a number of children while they slept. This is where the name "Santa Claus" comes from: the massive claw marks engraved in the walls of the bedrooms of the children massacred by the Were-Santa. Eventually, Claus withdrew into a shell in the 1800s, leaving it to parents to act in his stead whilst he lay trembling in a reinforced room at the North Pole, waiting in agony for the horrific transformation that would befall him. What can I say? It's Christmas, and I felt like I had to make it some kind of creepy. By the way, this is my Secret Santa present for Vrokorta; Merry Christmas! Comments, Criticism and random Christmas songs welcome.
