Uncanny xmas holidays in the ruins

Every xmas the ruins of Broken Hill come alive with cheer of this ancient religion. The cult of Santa teach how he was betrayed by Rudolf and crucified on a rocket and every year they celebrate this holiday. They also try to reclaim lost customs each season like xmas singing or rad-nog. Most of the year they are a quiet sect hording presents in secret. For a third of the year they are decorating and preparing for the holy day when Santa left Earth on his star chariot after returning to life.

Various illustrated scenes in the life of Santa are:

1 As a baby kills a time travelling robot from the future sent to kill him
2 As a child he lived in his magic polar palace served by ice people, elk folk and eldren
3 As a rebellious teen battled with the sea god for a decade until atoned
4 As a youth santa wrote the Communist Manifesto and started global revolution
5 Santa declares world peace truce and brings improved minimum wages and education to the world then fights the giant spider of global capitalism
6 Santa versus the giant dragon lizard, saving New Tokyo
7 Santa versus the Martians as documented in historical film footage
8 Santa kills Mr Monopoly with his death punch and talks the the anti-santa
9 Santa's time travelling adventure vs future Santa and primal Santa
10 Santa betrayed by Reindeer Rudolph to his enemies: the Scrooges
11 Santa is crucified on a missile as the apocalypse starts, dies and is rebooted
12 Santa flies away on his star chariot to return when nice outnumber the naughty again

Note the heretical volumes where mutant santa has various adventures and has lobster claws for hands and has the bad habit of snipping off peoples arms in a fight. Mutant-Santa is tolerate by normal xmas cultists. In many bunkers the tradition of always being xmas to calm children was long established in bunker culture. A mess of holiday specials, childrens books and mistakes created the current mythology of the apotheosis of Santa.

Many automated city system have Christmas modes that mostly kick in December each year. So expect strings of lights to grow like vines and bauble like fruit appear on trees. Some animals even migrate according to this magical holiday.

Of course in Oz xmas is a super hot time of the year often 40 degrees Celsius.
So no snow but the first survivor kids got atomic ash to play in which is a bit like snow.

Some xmas cultists expose themselves to happy inducing holiday cheer inducing psychotronic re-education devices. So cultists tend to be very cheerful and optimistic even in a fire fight.
