*He sees you when you’re sleeping
He sees when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness’ sake!
As Calvin once shrewdly observed about Santa Claus: “Kindly old elf, or CIA spook?” So, let’s think through again what we know about Santa Claus.
He’s awfully long lived for a human, though by most accounts he started out as one, at least.
He lives somewhere distant and legendary that no mortal has ever seen and returned to tell about.
He has an interest in mind control, and engages in long-distance surveillance of other people’s behavior.
He is ready to (promise to) shower rewards on those whose actions he deems in line with his goals.
He can fly high in the sky, using fantastic flying beasts, yet remains imperceptible to all but the most clear-sighted of humans.
My goodness. Is he… A latter-day Ringwraith?! Whatever happened to Saruman’s ring anyway, the one he made as “a child’s flattery” of the One Ring of Sauron which was cast into Mount Doom?
