Forget the jolly fat man in the red suit. In Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital, kids and adults flock to see the Black Santa. Come rain or shine (or snow), the man known as Black Santa sits on the steps of Belfast Cathedral, the Cathedral Church of St Anne from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. from Dec. 17 to Christmas Eve. He's not there to give away gifts but to collect for about 150 local charities.    This Santa derives his name from the Anglican clerical cloak (or cowl) that the dean of the cathedral wears.

In the den of Darryl Roth's Corona home, cartoon ogres cover the walls, staring back at him with salivating tongues, bloodshot eyes, jagged claws and gnashing teeth. To Roth, the images represent rebellion, a gloriously grotesque imagination — and his father. "I look around and I swear, it's like he's still alive. He's still here," Roth said. He's the youngest son of iconic hot rod artist Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, and this year marked the 10th anniversary of his father's passing. "Even now," said the son, "I'm blown away by him. " Between the late 1950s and the mid-1960s, Ed Roth was what famed journalist Tom Wolfe described as the Salvador Dali of the hot rod world.

A week before Christmas in 2003, a retired Los Angeles schoolteacher stood before a phalanx of news cameras and 250 reporters in a South Carolina ballroom and declared, "I am Essie Mae Washington-Williams, and at last I am completely free. " After more than 60 years, Washington-Williams had chosen to unburden herself of a secret: that she, a black woman, had been fathered by a white man - Sen. Strom Thurmond, the legendary South Carolina politician who had built a long Washington career as a champion of segregation.

The dance with Travolta was quite the talk of Washington the next day.

Those probably were not visions of sugarplums dancing through the head of the man I spied dozing on a bench in Santa Monica's Palisades Park. I leaned over him and offered my heartiest Ho! Ho! Ho! He awoke with a start and instinctively started throwing haymakers. Fortunately, he missed. "Oh, it's Santa," the man said when he got a clear look at me. "Sorry. I didn't know who it was."
