Before Coca-Cola decided to use his image for advertising, Santa's looks tended more toward spooky than jolly. Then, in 1931, the beverage company hired an illustrator named Haddon Sundblom to depict the jolly old elf for magazine ads. Now, kids see visions of sugarplums instead of having Santa-themed nightmares.

2008-An Iraqi court has sentenced Ali Hassan al-Majid to death. He was known as Chemical Ali, for his role in crushing a Shi'ite uprising in 1991, and this is the second death sentence passed on him. He is a cousin of Saddam Hussein. The court has also condemned another senior Baath Party official, Abdulghani Abdul Ghafour, to hang for the same crime. In February, al-Majid had been condemned to hang for genocide over the killing of one hundred thousand people during the 1988 Anfal campaign against Iraq's Kurds.
