We don't know where Santa surfs, but there's probably a good chance that he visits some of the sites below. They've been conveniently categorized as either Santa Links or Hi Tek Links (they're in no particular order within the categories, tho). All of these sites were up and running in late December 2002.

Santa Links

Christmas Songs
A site at the Utrecht University server (Netherlands) with over 150 midi files of classic Christmas songs (multiple versions of many songs). Lyrics to about 25 songs.

Baum's Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
Project Gutenberg has thousand's of classic books online, including Santa tales like this one from the creator of the Wizard of Oz.
The Hidden Meanings of Christmas
James Arthur's Mushrooms and Mankind/ Ethno-Mycology page presents an interesting interpretation of Christmas mythology in relation to hallucinogenic mushrooms. The Christmas article is down a ways on the very long the page (search the page for "Christmas" to locate it, then do a 'select all' to make the invisible text appear). It includes a number of illustrations and blends into the author's mushroom-centered interpretation of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
