Off topic: North Pole, elf labor, weird holiday traditions and depressing Christmas songs

So who actually owns the North Pole? (Hint: Santa only rents. And may have to learn to speak Danish.) Speaking of the North Pole, is Santa’s workshop actually a sweatshop taking advantage of slave labor? Back south of the pole, what are your favorite obscure holiday traditions? (Personally, I like the Catalan pooping figurines.) And finally, here are the five most depressing Christmas songs of 2014. (Including a Mark Kozalek diddy, because you can’t have a depressing song list without him!)
