HISTORY MONDAY: CHRISTMAS EVE

December 24, 2007

                     Santa Claus

Best HistorY: sepia Santa Claus

       Santa Claus–aka Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or simply “Santa” –is a historical and legendary figure in folklore who in western culture is described as bringing gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  

     Although–the legend may have its basis in hagiographical tales concerning the historical figure of Saint Nicholas — the  modern depiction of Santa Claus as a set jolly man (or elf) wearing a red coat and trousers with white cuffs and collar, and black leather  belt and boots became popular in the United States in the 19th century due to the significant influence of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast (along with a Mr Clement Moore)….  This Thomas Nast “image” of Santa  has been maintained and reinforced through song, radio, television, and films.

      The American version of Santa lives in the far north–in the land of perpetual snow aka The North Pole…* 

Best Santa Track: Satellite on Santa

Our sources tell us that “Norad” in Colorado Springs will be “tracking Santa” again this year….(“A Dashing–and a Dotting–through the snow–GPS style !”)

                                                        A Review

                                                             by

                                               Renee Ashley Baker

 Don’t need a new veggamatic you say?  Well–you ain’t gettin one fellas.  Hack, Slice and Dice is yours on Christmas Day and you don’t want to turn it down….

      Synopsis:  They’re called “The Tiger Team” and their specialty is “breaking into places”–for pay–and with the full consent of the owner! (That’s right!)  The Tiger Team has broken into banks, international airports, Fortune 500 companies, and they always, always, get away–scott free–with “da loot”.  How do they do it?  Well–

Hack (the white pant slick as a cucumber computer hacker Chris) does the ‘physical assessment”.  Which–in laymen’s terms means — he “cases the joint” (and he does it in broad open day light!).

Slice (the McGyver like Luke) is the “wireman”–the electrician–and he attaches things like “wireless access points” to servers and attaches  mini-cameras (aka pin cameras) to alarm key pads (and he does it all under the nose of company employees!). 

Dice (He’s Ryan– the “plumber” on the team) he dices–er, I mean he picks–door locks, wall safes, windows, car doors.  If you name it — he can break into it!…. (The great Claude Rains himself  would be impressed with this  guy! )

 To believe them you’ve got to see them–in action.  In the first episode, to air Christmas night, The Tiger Team steal a million dollar “Lotus” out of an automobile show room. ( They leave a note attached to the car that’s hilarious!)….  I’ve been watching “Court TV” for years.  View: “The Tiger Team”, on Court TV, December 25, 2007.  Check your  local listings for time….
