Strolling around town yesterday (i.e. the day before St Nicholas) I observed several Santas hanging around. I don't know whether the arrival of Santas in town before St Nicholas should be attributed to global warming. It does seem to reflect some changes in productivity of labor and supply chain management, though: more than once I spotted a pair of smallish Santas, reflecting attempts to use more less qualified labor. Meanwhile, a bunch of unemployed elves loitered in a garden.
