I've seen Santa. He looks like this..... In case you're wondering, that's not a snow suit...he is wearing full body chaps to protect from cactus, mesquite thorns, and rattlesnakes.
"I must say as to what I have seen of Texas it is the garden spot of the world. The best land and the best prospects for health I ever saw, and I do believe it is a fortune to any man to come here." Davy Crockett, 1836
