Santa Lore and Free Stuff

Free Stuff

Web Worker Daily, one of my favority sources of utility programs and the like, has a good summary of sites where you can find free software here.


I read an article in the Wall Street Journal just the other day that claimed that Santa's red suit was introduced by the Coca Cola company. Well, turns out that's an urban legend. A pointer from Seth Godin's blog to this excellent history of the modern image of Santa Claus at the Urban Legends site is worth a read in this season. As you can see there, some of the original 19th century pictures of Santa show him in his 'signature' red suit.
