I really like this image. But the text I wrote for it, just after Christmas 2019, was not of a sufficiently high standard to warrant publication, so I have pulled it. It featured an attempt to integrate Santa’s reindeer, namely Prancer, Dancer, Dasher, Vixen, Donner and Blitzen with notions of aerial threat and wars past and present, thereby insistently ironising the Santa material. The text was mawkish, heavy handed and melodramatic. It had no place here.
