Used but not abused

Yesterday, I wrote about how my Flickr pictures can be used under the Creative Commons licence free of charge.

It seems that a company called have recently taken my picture of Santa to use for a blog post about 7 weird Santas from around the world.

Out of the seven, the Christmas goat in Sweden looks friendly enough. However, I am sure the prospect of being visited by  Krampus in Austria  would frighten children to death and even the Yule lads from Iceland have a nasty side because they are descendants of Grýla, a cruel troll hag whose favourite dish is a stew of naughty children!

My Santa is a friendly soul who sits at the bottom of the fireplace smoking his pipe.
