Somehow, the idea of Santa as a ninja came about during an online chat with my friend Aaron. It seems a little absurd.
But! When you think about it, Santa is kind of like a ninja, right? He sneaks around in the dead of night, undetected, slipping down chimneys and magically manifesting in houses that don't have fireplaces. He can’t run across water, but I’ll bet he can run across ice without skidding, which is, frankly, a more useful skill. And summoning presents with a ninja jutsu seems more practical than carrying several countries' worth of gifts around with him... Right?
Anyway. Merry Christmas!
