The Christmas World in Go-onger

In Super Sentai, Christmas specials were done during Dairanger, Kakuranger, Carranger, Megaranger, GogoV, Timeranger, Gaoranger, Hurricanger, Abaranger, Dekaranger, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger, Go-onger, Gokaiger and Gobusters. Now for the analysis... but please note that according to Toei, most Super Sentai series take place in their own continuity and there is the VS. Continuity to which Gokaiger exists.

Santa Claus made his first appearance in Go-onger. Go-onger transferred his setting from the North Pole to a Braneworld known as Christmas World rather than the traditional North Pole or in way past, he was located in Europe. Actually Christmas World didn't appear again until Shinkenger vs. Go-onger. My thoughts is that the people of this world have the season every day, are required by law to dress up in their red suits and use "Merry Christmas" as a daily greeting rather than a seasonal greeting. Now for its possible inspiration...

Apparently the inspiration of Christmas World in Go-onger was most likely from the Christmas Island in Kakuranger which was located in the North Pole. So instead of just having one Santa Claus to deliver the presents, this version of the story doesn't have elves but an army of people dressed up as Santa Claus to deliver the presents. Christmas Island was again mentioned in Boukenger when Satoru met a female Santa named Eve. So if Boukenger were canon to Go-onger, Eve must be a resident of Christmas World.

Now for their possible way of life:

I guess visitors of this world must comply dressing like the rest of its inhabitants. Now for their other probable lifestyle:
  • I guess turkey, ham, roast beef and whatever are served only in Christmas in the Human World must be a staple food or daily food for its residents. So I guess turkey meat is very much abundant in this realm.
  • Milk and cookies are a daily treat.
  • All desserts are Christmas treats. So I guess pears are their favorite food based on the song "12 Days of Christmas".
  • Most of the commerce relies on baking, cooking and toymaking. Possibly coal mining is also abundant since they do have to drop some coal for the naughty people.
  • Six days a week work, one day rest but most of the time most of the people are making toys and making treats for Christmas on Human World as well as the other Braneworlds.
  • Birthdays are probably celebrated but with Christmas cakes instead of birthday cakes.
  • Maybe if they celebrate Thanksgiving, they eat something else instead of turkey.
  • Also, I doubt it the residents get gifts daily since they're the ones who make the gifts.
