According to the classic holiday movie, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town (1970), Santa Claus is a redhead. Who else would live at the North Pole, deliver toys made by elves around the world for boys and girls, ride in a sleigh driven by flying reindeer, and drop down through a chimneys than a redhead? Santa Claus was a redheaded orphan, raised by elves (which makes him a redheaded stepchild), made friends with the winter wizard who gives him a magic crystal snow ball, magic corn to make the reindeer fly and ensures there is always a white Christmas and lights on the Christmas trees. He was an outlaw who fights the bad guy-Meisterberger- wins the heart of the lady through his good deeds and changes the world through gift giving!
Boudica was a queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 or 61, and died shortly after its failure, having supposedly poisoned herself. (Wikipedia)
Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.

Tested on Ourselves! My husband (a redhead) and I both have very sensitive skin that burns, not tans. We were outside in direct sun by a lake for 2 hours during the hottest part of the day, and didn’t get burned wearing just one application of our sunscreen. Our 2 year old baby girl was also unscathed!
Note: Will stain dark clothing. Apply before getting dressed, and rub in well.

Known for gangster roles in those old black and white movies, James Cagney, with his high-energy, on edge tough persona, and raspy voice was unmistakable. Less obvious due to the films’ lack of color was the fact that he was a redhead.
You can always count on a redhead to do something crazy! Like challenging the full force of a hurricane wearing nothing but his briefs.
Meet the modern day berserker, Lane Pittman. Berserkers, of ancient Norse origin, were known for their fierceness. They went into battle naked wearing nothing perhaps but bearskin, hence the name. In Lane’s case, nothing but flying red hair, white skin and blue shorts. Berserkers dedicated themselves to the Norse god Odin, leader of the Viking gods, a shapeshifter possessed by the spirit of the wolf or bear. Lane in his battle frenzy challenges the force of Hurricane Florence, shaking like a shaman to heavy metal music and brandishing the American flag. Go Red!

Freyja: Goddess of Magic, Love and Healing
Of all the Norse gods and goddesses, Freyja alone has enjoyed unbroken worship throughout history. Goddess of magic, love, fertility and healing, her name means “the lady”, as if to emphasize she is the epitome of woman. Patron of wise women, seeresses, rune-mistresses and healers, she is Mistress of Seidhr, the brewing of potions and herbal medicines. As goddess of beauty, she encourages self-awareness, appreciation for and acceptance of one’s own personal beauty. She was also able give new life to the slain. Called the Shining One, legend recounts how she was cast into fire three times, each time emerging unharmed, thus earning the name. Even the rune “F” for Freyja represents good health.
Women dedicated to Freyja travelled around healing people, and this inspired us create our shop Freyja’s Magic. In the spirit of Freyja, it is our mission to bring healing to others, and cultivate true beauty through our handmade body care, crafted in harmony with nature. (Original post on vikinghof)

It was a strange end for lovely redhead, Lara Prychodko, 48, who was found dead in a trash compactor, having fallen 27 floors to her death in a garbage chute in a New York upscale building. She was married to a Big Pharma exec and an associate of George Soros. Interestingly, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner had lived in the building as well. God bless her soul.
After reading a couple of books on red hair by female authors, I felt seriously misrepresented. Being redheads themselves, these females noted that men with red hair have gotten the short end of the stick and ended up on the negative side of what it means to be a redhead. They claimed that you don’t think of men when you think redhead and that redheaded guys are only related to Howdy Doody. Essentially us “Rufuses” are just dorks. Perhaps this is the view of popular culture, but is it what redheaded men are really like? Personally, I have always looked up to Thor the red-headed god of thunder. So I did a search on the internet to find out if there were other red-haired warriors out there. Here is pictorial proof to the contrary that the only strong, sexy redhead is a woman. I’m not sure who any of these guys are except for Shaun White. Howdy Doody? Whatever!!! I’m a berserker and proud of it!
If you believe the Vikings series on the History Channel, it would appear that the majority of the Vikings were blondes. In Marvel’s Thor, he is blonde. The truth of the matter is that the god of thunder as well of a fair share of Vikings had red hair. According to Professor Donna Heddle, director of the University of the Highlands and Islands’ Centre for Nordic Studies, red hair was a cultural marker to the travels of the Vikings found in such places as Scotland and Russia. Now some would argue that red hair comes from the Celtics as well.
In my case, I have red hair from my Norwegian father, unless my dad is the mailman, and red hair from my German mother. Neither of my parents have red hair. My German grandmother had beautiful red curly locks. I have never met my dad’s parents but his kids from his first marriage to an Italian woman produced 2 kids with red hair. Yes I was treated like a red-haired stepchild. So if we are all to thank the Vikings for our red hair, I guess they journeyed to Italy because it takes red-haired genes from both parents to make redhead babies. Plus my wife’s great-grandfather, Angelo, who was Italian had striking red hair. He was a wild man too, wooing his future wife away from the convent by writing her love letters from his own blood during the second world war. Vikings were known to attack convents of ‘brides of Christ.’ I stole my woman from the Sister Theresa convent too.
