Little-Known Santa No. 17

Hanging out at the frigid North Pole year after year after year can get to be a bit of a frost-bitten drag. That's why the one thing Little-Known Santa No.17 loves most in the off-season is heading down to Ensenada to play in a mariachi band!

Of course, Santo de Mayo is also very pleased that he can alternate his frenetic and stress-laden deep winter Christmas activities with the laid back and relaxing late spring summer celebration of his Mexican heritage (Some believe the fellow on the red, white and green sombrero to in fact be a great-grandnephew of General Santa Anna himself!).

And the yearly roundabout from the Arctic to the near-Equatorial is also a grand gustatory journey for this epicure as well. Aaaaah! Savory roast goose, sage stuffing, warm cranberry muffins, steaming hot cocoa and spiked eggnog at the North Pole each yuletide, then fresh fish tacos with salsa verde, followed by hot churros drizzled in chocolate sauce, and salted-rim margaritas of only the best tequila on the sunny beach at a radiant low tide sunset! Could life get any better than this? Methinks not!

So, digest away, and play on, mi muchacho gordo!

Ensenada Municipality, Baja California, Mexico

      Now this is a Santa I can relate to! You've chosen a perfect illustration.

      The best of two worlds,,sigh. Some folks aren't that fortunate. However, it's there for the taking, we just have to find it.

      Have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous, happy New Year :)
