RAW on the pagan origins of Santa Claus

Via the energetic Steven Pratt's "Keep the Ravioli in Orbit" page on Facebook, I learned about this essay by Robert Anton Wilson, which traces the pagan origins of Santa Claus. (The reprint on the blog "10 Zen Monkeys" does not credit where the piece originally appeared.) Enjoy the essay, and Merry Christmas (or Happy Winter Solstice) to everyone.
