Not the fake one with the beard and belly that shakes like jelly, I'm Solsticing with the real Santa: the Great Goddess Holda, of continental Europe.
It's not an obese elf in a sleigh who's always brought children gifts in December at night while they sleep, it's Holda.
Kids leave out cookies and milk for Her (or, in the past, whatever they had in the house that came close -- maybe a mug of lager and a slice of strudel if milk and cookies were nowhere near).
And Holda drinks and nibbles a bit, just to let them know she's been there.
In case you too want to Solstice with Holda, I've posted pics of her above and below. These are various artists' ideas of what She looks like, so don't take them literally. You might have a better idea than they do.
Since Holda grows old with the year, in spring she's young and gloriously gorgeous, and in winter old and regal.
Babies and children she loves all year round.
