Hey friends. This is my first holiday season in a new city where I don't really know anyone, and it's been really tough being away from friends and family. I love Christmas so much because as a kid, it was the only time of year my family showed some semblance of functionality. Someone I work with knew I was having a tough time and sent me this picture in an email to help cheer me up. It combines two of my favorite things: Christmas and alternate reality timelines. And you know what, that small act of someone saying, "Thinking about you man" really did help to make my day a little better.

How awesome is that picture? I thought it would be cool if we started a thread posting pictures of Santa being a badass, to help cheer up anyone else who might be feeling down this holiday season. Leave it in the comments!
