Irrefutable Proof that Santa is Odin by mirovia Irrefutable Proof that Santa is Odin by mirovia
Apologies for just including the first panel of this comic. But I regularly update the content and it became too difficult to maintain in two places. Please visit Peace, Love, & Monkeys: www.peaceloveandmonkeys.com for the full comic.

It's that time of year again, when children around the world eagerly await the arrival of a jolly, old, fat man bearing gifts and Christmas cheer. And to think, we owe it all to the Vikings and their dark and beautifully twisted mythology.

Of course, some default mistakes you can find and I am not sooo convinced by Odin's Portrayal ;) but it's just... ingenious!

This was well done :3 It was also entertaining :XD: However, you did make a mistake that I caught. Frey is the Lord of Alfheim, it was given to him as a gift. But other than that the research is great!

I thank you for your comment and applaud your knowledge of Norse mythos. There are a few ways to take my Odin as lord of elves assertion. To some degree, it was artistic license - the main point is that elves are a product of Norse mythology and as such are strongly associated with Odin. But the connection extends beyond this: 1) Odin, as lord of Alfheim was able to grant the title to Freyr. 2) There are compelling arguments for viewing Freyr as just an aspect of Odin himself - much as Frigg and Freya are often thought of as a single deity. The Aesir and Vanir may represent the re-integration of two slightly divergent theologies - Odin and Freyr are based on the same deity. 3) In many instances, the elves are referred to as "Odin's men" (ex. Thorsdrapa, Lay of Thor). Thanks again for reading and commenting! Much appreciated.

Did you mean Winter Solstice? There is no equinox in winter. and the correct names are Vernal and Autumnal equinoxes. It's kinda obvious which is which. Other than that, very interesting!

This is amazing, the way you have written it reminds of of the Horrible History books from a long time ago now. Great stuff to learn and I think you have convinced me that Santa is Odin. Illustrated perfectly to help with the point and imagination when reading! Thumbs up for this.
