A perennial thread at the Candlekeep Forums resurrected by white thread-necromancy around the holiday season are the web freebies from Wizards of the Coast site of yesteryear detailing Nicholas the Gift-Giver, his Northern Palace, and his Gnome Toymakers and Cooks.
Indeed, Santa has stats! For d20 anyway. Throwing aside the "if it has stats" mentality for the moment, I've always found this to be one of the more pleasant holiday themed articles from Wizards.
The pages are still there buried beneath the current site (now probably several redesigns since) and the links are enclosed below:
Also note the corresponding Nicholas the Gift-Giver wallpapers rendered in the sizes prevalent at the time including the widely used 640x480, the commonly found 800x600, as well as the rarer high definition at the time 1024x768.
Enjoy this blast from the spirit of internet past!
