Response to Wounded Bear (Reply #9)

Fri Nov 8, 2019, 02:01 AM

20. The Turkish Santa

Was Saint Nicholas of Myra, I believe.

He used to sail into the harbour in Amsterdam, all the way from Spain, according to my childhood memories.

Of course, Santa was white, and his servants black.

How to bastardise history and teach racism in one go!

Pretty much how I remember it.
