It's easy to forget that Santa Claus has his origins in northern European wildman myths, so it's cool to see this family tree from the Fortean Times that lays it all out. I'd like to see Enkidu on there, and might actually more of a scholarly approach than the humorous one on here, but the artist is drawing for an audience that already knows the lineage somewhat, whereas most people don't.
