It's Kitschmas - Door 8
Door eight pays tribute to Bodhi Day, the day that the historical Buddha Siddhartha Gautauma achieved enlightenment, Santa must be a Buddhist because he's always concerned with karma and who's been naughty or nice.
My top Buddha themed Christmas present suggestion would be "The Years of Rice and Salt" by Kim Stanley Robinson , an alternative history of the world where europe was wiped out by the black death in the middle ages. Not only it a great piece of alt.history I love it that the Orkneys are mentioned in it.
