(IV) A Cimmerian X-Mas?

With apologies to Robert E. Howard:

Hither came Santa, the Claus, white-haired, sullen-eyed, axe in his hands, a giver, a wreather, a sleigher, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic girth, to tread the snowed rooftops of the Earth under his booted feet.

Well?  What else are you going to say when faced with this?

Santa the Barbarian 000
