Check out Nicholas Was, a wonderful video exploring a darker version of the holidays. Based on a passage from Neil Gaiman's Smoke and Mirrors, Nicholas Was is an animated video offering a different take on the myth of Santa Claus. This was first posted some five years ago by 39 Degrees North, but I think it's amazing. Also, Neil Gaiman, so yay! Merry Christmas and holiday love, from TMO.
