“Dun Che Lao Ren” is Chinese for “Christmas OldMan,” and how Christian children in China refer to Santa Claus. Muslin stockings are specially made and hung by the children on Christmas Eve, hoping they will be filled with wonderful gifts on Christmas!

As every culture and region has its own particular versions of Santa Claus and the details surrounding this jolly little man I would like to add my own. My version of Santa coming to town would be on a horse, not in a sleigh being pulled by flying reindeer, although yes the horse in my version would fly also, haven’t you heard of Pegasus? Seems to me it would be easier to maneuver onto all those rooftops with one horse rather than eight grumpy reindeer pulling a sleigh? Thoughts? Oh, by the way I am not sure what Santa would call his horse any ideas?

A different version of Santa Claus in a blue hat set against the traditional red stocking. I like playing around with colors, what if Santa wore a blue suit instead of a red one? How would that change our view of him? We he be more or less trustworthy? Would it matter at all to our consumer driven society that is willing to spend more many than we have on things we want but don’t need? Just contemplating here…
