Christmas Dot Com
Peace and goodwill to all men...on the Web.

http://www.howstuffworks.com/christmas.htm

First up, to enjoy Christmas, you have to know everything there is to know about it. And that's where this site comes in.

The site takes the viewpoint of a person trying to explain this festival to an alien called Gorg. So, you have a series of basic questions about Christmas. Now, though may seem really mundane, when you go through them, you'll probably realize that what you thought you knew wasn't really all that accurate. So, go through this and you'll know why they call it "X'mas", or what's the deal with the famous Rudolph.

Then there are links to related books, which should tell you anything else you need to know. The next couple of pages talk about the event and the magnitude of it around the world.

After learning about the festival, you have to learn everything about the man of the moment. He goes by different names, but he has just one face - a laughing, bearded one. So, this is where you go to for information on the Saint of Christmas.

The site is small, neat and very direct. It's actually a page from another site, but it could stay up on its own. All it aims to do is tell you all about the different identities of the man who's most commonly called Santa Claus. So, you have details on St. Nicholas, Kris Kringle and some others who're not that common. There's also a decent bit of history associated with each segment.

Besides this, there is information on people who've been associated with the phenomenon of dear ol' Santa. Artists and authors who have made him famous worldwide are here, too. Quite a decent site to get all the basic ideas right.
