False.


I don't regard Snopes as an authority on anything.  Santa Claus and variations like Father Christmas and St. Nicholas had attire typical for the class of people he represented.  Sometimes, there was a greatcoat type thing and it was sometime red.  While Coke didn't invent the image fully formed, they definitely solidified it in the minds of everyone everywhere with their ad campaigns, and today, people think of nothing else but Coke's Santa.

True.

Bull-shiat. Stopped reading at #3:

Reindeer are common in Siberia and northern Europe, and seek out these hallucinogenic fungi, as the area's human inhabitants have also been known to do. Donald Pfister, a Harvard University biologist who studies fungi, suggests that Siberian tribesmen who ingested fly agaric may have hallucinated that the grazing reindeer were flying.

Methinks these academics are "studying fungi" a little too much, and should maybe study some damn literature.
