Santa Claus: Alien vs Wizard. Which one is he? #fantasy #Christmas

5 Reasons to Believe Santa is an alien:

1.  He can travel to every house in the world in one night. Evidence of advanced technology: either time dilation or traveling beyond the speed of light.

2.  He has flying reindeer from his alien homeworld. Some have red noses that light up.

3.  He carries one sack filled with presents for everyone.

4.  He can pack away a lot of snacks in one night and not get sick. Evidence he has at least 8 stomachs.

5.  He flies in a ship through the sky. Aliens always do.

5 Reasons to Believe Santa is a wizard:

1.  He has a pointy hat. Wizards always do.

2.  He has long hair and a beard. Wizards always do.

3.  He knows who is naughty and nice. Via a crystal ball.

4.  His tummy rumbles like Jell-o. This is prime evidence of wizardcraft.

5.  He gets the elves to want to make toys all year long for fun. Elves are generally magical.

Oh, there are plenty more reasons to believe he's one or the other. There's even overlap. Some talents he has could be alien or wizard. Whatever you believe, believe in the good cheer of the season and have yourself a merry one!

Here's another holiday treat...

Backworlds Box Collection: Books 1, 2, and 3

The Backworlds Books 1, 2, and 3: The Backworlds, Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge, and Boomtown Craze.
In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This set contains the first 3 novels in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

The Backworlds
After the war with the Foreworlders, Backworlders scatter across the remaining planets. Competition is fierce, and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to improve his fortunes by destroying his son. He tells his only boy their moon isn’t big enough for them both and gives Craze a ticket for the next transport leaving the space dock.

Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge
Revenge is on Craze’s mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke. That’s the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

Boomtown Craze

Craze is only days away from the grand opening of his shiny new tavern. The starway opens, bringing in a loony Backworlder intent on mucking up his carefully laid plans. Gaunt and trembling, she claims her spaceship is possessed. She also has a connection to the underworld, threatens to end Craze’s prosperity before it begins.

  1. I vote for an alien wizard. Which works for me.
    Thank you for yet more booky temptation.
    And Merry Christmas.

  2. Oh, that's tough. I'd say wizard, because he looks too humanoid, but that could be an alien disguise. Yeah, I'm going with wizard because he likes sweets!

    1. It is tough. I hadn't thought of an alien disguise. That could be true.

  3. He's either an alien-wizard hybrid, or Santa is in a class all by himself...

  4. Your #3 in aliens works for wizards too. You should see all Newt Scamander can get in his suitcase. ;) Time dilation would explain a lot. Maybe he's part-alien and part-wizard. That way he can use time dilation along with a Time-Turner to get to every house in "one" night.

  5. Or better yet, Santa is a Time Lord! =D

  6. I think he's a wizard. Plenty of those Alien points you made (such as the bag carrying so many gifts) could point to wizardry as well. ;-)

  7. Ha! Too funny. This was a nice morning laugh. Christy

  8. He's a wizard alien! Wait, I had to choose, didn't I? I guess I think he's an alien, and elves must be, too.

    Congrats, again!

  9. I have to go with Wizard although you did make a good argument for Alien.
    Happy Holidays to you and the whole UR gang!

  10. Wizard! Even has a pipe like Gandalf.
