Santa Claus is already aloft and making his way around the world, leaving gifts for good boys and girls. My daughter Sierra is following him on the internet — I don’t know which site she’s using, but here is Google’s Santa Tracker.
When she told me Santa is in Turkey I reminded her I’d been to Turkey myself, where Saint Nicholas is from. It seemed more in the spirit of the season to leave out that I saw his relics displayed in the Antalya Museum. This seems to have been a doubly good decision — while searching for a link to include here I learned that shortly after I visited in 2004 experts determined the bones I saw in Antalya are fakes. The real ones have been in Italy for almost a thousand years.
